A day to stop and think

At the end of May each year

To remind us of our freedom

And the brave who had to bear.

They fought with courage and strength

Through blood, and sweat, and pain

For the honor of their country

And our liberty to gain.

The priceless gift was given

Each time victory rang true

But priceless lives were taken

To wave red, white, and blue.

We ponder and look ‘round

At all those endless graves

We remember with great honor

The lives the heroes saved.

So on this day of memories

So full of bitter and sweet

We thank the God of glory

For saving from defeat.

For He gave each man desire

To fight for land and sea

We praise God for His plans

That made our country free.
