Harold Dutton's Legislator's Prayer. He had the leg holding hands in the aisles.
To the God of the Panhandle, to the God of the Rio Grande Valley, To the God of the High Plains, to the God of the Gulf Coast,
To the God of the Piney Woods, To the God of central Texas,
To the God of West Texas,
To the God of rural Texas, to the God of urban Texas,
To the God of the poor, to the God of the powerful,
We thank you for being one God,
and we pray that our differences serve to keep Texas one under God.
The House stands adjourned sine die. Members and their families are invited to the Speakers' Apartment for a dessert reception. And Craddick thanked Keel and Wilson for doin' a great job filling in as parliamentarians. The applause on that point was somewhat less than enthusiastic.
