A prayer solemn

We offer today;

It is for Veterans

We now pray.


Selfless, valiant,

Risking death gallantly:

Soldiers do all this

To ensure we are free.


So many have died

There on the battleground;

No music then to comfort,

Simply gun blasts all around.


So many names and faces

That I will never know,

So many stories of bravery

In warring winds did blow.


Grateful am I to these

Men and Women brave,

To think of all they did,

All they risked, all they gave.


Extend this heartfelt prayer

I will, to reach their ears;

How treasured they are to me,

Marching onward despite fears.


And those who have passed,

May God bless them lavishly –

These very ones who died

So that we would live free.


In the stories of Veterans

We see a shadow of the Cross:

Christ died to set us free,

Our gain was through His loss.


Gratefully we praise these heroes

Often silent and unknown,

And we remember Christ’s blood

From which eternal life has grown.

      Thank you so very much!

      May we never forget the immense sacrifices they made (and continue to make)…
      nor may we forget the ultimate Sacrifice of the Cross.

      GOD Bless!
