On Memorial Day we honor veterans who died.
On Veterans Day we honor those who are still alive.
There could be more time for recognition, celebration,
More time given for our thoughtful consideration;
Let us pray for these brave women and men
Who give their lives In the service of our nation.
Yes, fly the flag, watch what we say,
And for their families, we also pray.
And pray for our leaders to do what is right,
Turn from sin’s darkness towards the light.
We, should bravely serve each other, too.
The LORD has a blessing for me and for you.
