A Day to Remember

We see the veterans on parade
To the tune of a marching band
And are reminded of the missing ones
Who died in a foreign land

We honor all of those who served
More than mere words can tell
We know that freedom isnít free
We stand because some fell

To those who served in times of peace
Who left home and prepared
And faithfully watched and waited
We are thankful you were spared

So we honor all for their sacrifice
Much is gained but some are lost
And think of the death above all deaths
That of Jesus on the cross

So while earthly freedoms mean so much
They are temporal at best
Jesus frees us for all time
In Him we are eternally blest
