With a sober heart we pray
On this solemn Memorial Day
And recall those who gave their all
So that our Nation yet stands tall
So many wars and rivers of tears
Shed by mothers, fathers, and dears
They sacrificed their lives for us
As did our Lord … so long ago
Dear Lord, have mercy on those who serve
Love them, protect them, bring them home
Bless them Lord, and should they die
Take them home with you to abide.
For it is said, “ … no greater love than this
A man gives up his life for a friend.”
With this in mind, we must recall
Those who gave us … their all.
