We remember in silence

We remember with praise

All those who died

For our future days.


They fought long and hard

That we may have peace

While hoping and praying

That all wars would cease.


So on their behalf

Let’s continue to pray

And fight the good fight

Towards peace every day.


With God on our side

That battle we’ll win

In remembrance of them

And to glorify Him.


As today we wear poppies

To remember our dead

Let peace be the victor

In all days ahead.
