U.S. Capitol Complex - References to God

According to the Architect of the Capitol, Washington, D.C., the following passages are inscribed within the U.S. Capitol Complex:

In the Cox Corridors
"America! God shed his grace on Thee, and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!" - Katharine Lee Bates

In the House Chamber
"In God we trust."

In the Prayer Room (the "Prayer Room"??!!!)
"Annuit coeptis" (God has favored our undertakings)

"Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust." - Psalm 16:1

In the Senate Chamber
Over east doorway: "Annuit coeptis" (God has favored our undertakings)

Over south entrance: "In God we trust"
