The veteran has fought
That freedom we might know.
To guarantee that we can worship
The Lord Jesus that we love so.
It is the veteran
Who has fought that we
Could assemble and speak
In a land that is free.
The right to vote our choice.
And the right of a fair trial, too.
Because the veteran
Gave so much for me and you.
There are those that have been and are today
Who would take all our freedoms away.
My thanks to the veteran
Who fought hat freedom might stay.
May there always be those
Who for this Republic take a strong stand.
Who when the time called for it
Would fight for this dear land.
May we honor the veteran
On this Veterans Day.
And for the peace and freedom
Of this nation may we pray.
