Florida Constitution - Grateful to God for Liberty

The Constitution of Florida, originally from 1845, contains in its preamble a statement of gratitude to God:

"We, the people of the State of Florida, being grateful to Almighty God for our constitutional liberty, in order to secure its benefits, perfect our government, insure domestic tranquility, maintain public order, and guarantee equal civil and political rights to all, do ordain and establish this constitution."
