The Benediction from today's inauguration

Rev. Joseph Lowery came an incredibly powerful benediction today:

God of our weary years, God of our silent tears, thou, who has brought us thus far along the way, thou, who has by thy might led us into the light, keep us forever in the path we pray, lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met thee, lest our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget thee.

Read the rest here. Thanks to Tim at Tale Spin.

The best part of the inauguration -- by far.
