President Carter's Inaugural Address - Walk Humbly with God

Our 39th President was Jimmy Carter. In his 1977 Inaugural address he said:

"Here before me is the Bible used in the inauguration of our first President, in 1789, and I have just taken the oath of office on the Bible my mother gave me a few years ago, opened to a timeless admonition from the ancient prophet Micah: 'He hath showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.' (Micah 6: 8)
"Let us learn together and laugh together and work together and pray together, confident that in the end we will triumph together in the right."
