For knowing that I have a place as I wake to a new day, For the right to speak my mind, or kneel quietly to pray... For the dreams I strive to reach, for the love I'm free to give, For the laughter shared with dearest friends, a necessity to live... For the security and peace of mind that all is safe and sound, For growing, sharing, hoping, caring -- there's goodness all around. For all of this, we're grateful for, whisper soft or loudly sing... Their duty and their sacrifice have let our freedom ring! Memorial Day is a time for thanks and remembrance.
They served and fought and died so that we might be safe and free. Grant them, O Lord, Eternal peace and give them the victory... And in these days of unrest filled with grave uncertainty, let's not forget the price they paid to keep our country free. Thinking of you on Memorial Day
