To those who gave all —
We honor and pray for eternal rest.
To those who are missing in action —
We express remembrance and hope.
To those who were wounded in action —
We honor you.
To those who were prisoners of war —
We rejoice in your freedom.
To those who returned home —
We dedicate our eternal gratitude.

Day is done. Gone from the sun.
From the lake. From the hills.
From the sky.
All is well. Safely rest.
God is nigh.
Fading light. Dims the sight.
And a star gems the sky.
Gleaming bright.
From afar. Drawing nigh.
Fall the night.

Thanks and praise. For our days.
'Neath the sun. 'Neath the stars.
'Neath the sky.
As we go. This I know.
God is nigh.
