MEMORIAL DAY PRAYER

(Send as Memorial Day eCard)

A prayer solemn

I offer this Memorial Day:

It is for our valiant Veterans

I do humbly pray


 

Selfless, sacrificial,

Risking death gallantly -

Soldiers do all this

To ensure I am 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;

I marvel at 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 for those who have passed,

May God bless them lavishly,

These very ones who died

So that I would live free.

 

In the stories of Veterans

I see a shadow of the Cross:

Christ died to set me free,

My gain is through His loss.

 

Gratefully I praise these heroes,

Often silent and unknown.

And I remember Christ’s blood

From which eternal life is known.

 

To those who have fought

There on the battleground,

I pray God's blessings to you

Will eternally abound.
