To the guidance of Almighty God

“I now commend you, fellow-citizens, to the guidance of Almighty God, with a full reliance on His merciful providence for the maintenance of our free institutions, and with an earnest supplication that whatever errors it may be my lot to commit in discharging the arduous duties which have devolved on me will find a remedy in the harmony and wisdom of your counsels.”
{James Polk quoting Andrew Jackson in his 1st Annual Message to Congress; December 2, 1845}
