|A Memorial Day Salute|
|Each year in the U.S. of A.|
We have a Memorial Day;
Remembrance for all
Who answered the call
By placing their lives in harm's way.
This day should not pass with regret,
We owe an unpayable debt
To all the bravehearted,
Those valiant departed,
Whose sacrifice we'll not forget.
For freedom their lives served as shields,
Advancing in war's ravaged wealds
'Gainst tyranny's fist
They made the resist,
Triumphant on battle-torn fields.
In skies, upon seas or on land,
Whatever the point of command,
They stormed ev'ry hell
Where heroes' blood fell
'Til God gave them rest by his hand.
In shadows of Old Glory's wave
We cherish the mem'ries we save
Of those who stand tall
In Patriots' Hall --
By Freedom salute we The Brave!
