The first without the second tightly intertwined
Is of a nation which has in vain been designed:
pledge allegiance to the flag of the free;
I pledge obedience to the God who gave us liberty;
And to the favored land Old Glory
And to His Son, His only begotten Prince,
One nation, indivisible,
under the God who gave our country birth;
One God, omnipotent, over all nations upon the Earth,
With liberty and justice for one
With salvation for all who upon Him call.
