WE HONOR THEM

Those who served

and paid the price,

valued our freedom

above their lives.

Fighting for country

was more than loyalty.

Love reigned in the hearts

of these men and women,

who put their lives

where there is no surety

of coming back alive.

Strong to defend,

Quickly they mobilize

against all threats

that want to destroy

our nation of freedoms.

We honor their sacrifice

and lift them up

before God,

these brave, noble soldiers

this Memorial Day.

Amen.

 

 

 

A MEMORIAL

Sometimes war is a death sentence

For soldiers defending our country

With the honor and glory given them

By our country should they fall

These men and women

Regard not heavily

This likelihood

Many put their faith in God

To protect them

Soldiers groomed by training

Impressed by duty

Go to war to protect

Our way of life

Freedom

We bow our heads

Before God today

To honor our fallen

Soldiers who peered into the future

Saw our country preserved

The rights of our citizens intact

We say a solemn “Thank you”

To these American heroes

May they rest in the Lord
