A Hymn for a Divided Nation

I was going to write, and still intend to, a post asking the question whether government can be legitimate (I believe it can by the way), but decided that it would be better to send a link to the hymn “O God of Earth and Altar.”  I encountered it during my morning devotions using the excellent website It was written by G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936).  Looking at our nation and the current election, it is clear that we need prayer more than analysis.  May God bless us all.
