Memorial Day

Remember, Lord, the fallen
Who died in fields of war, 
In flaming clouds, in screaming crowds,
On streets that are no more,
That we today might waken
And greet this day in peace
With grateful prayer for those who bear
The storms that never cease.

Remember friends and stranger, 
And those forgotten now,
Who names are known to you alone, 
Before whose love we bow
And ask that you surround them
With mercy's endless light
That they may live, and we forgive
The foe they went to fight

Remember, Lord, the living,
Who bear the pain of loss
A death she died who stood beside
Her Son upon the cross.

Remember all your children
The dead and those who weep,
And make us one beneath the sun
Where love will ever sleep.

Thanks be to God!


  1. And we should not forget to pray to the family who was left behind who is still grieving for the loss. Thanks for the visit.

  2. I like your blog. Very nice.


This has become a new adventure. One in which I will try to express my journey with providence.
