Memorial Day 2016

Memorial Day 2016

The flags at Greenwood Cemetery.

Thank you soldiers that gave your all and didn’t return home, Thank you soldiers who returned from battles, Thank you to all the soldiers for serving our country.


Day is done,
gone the sun,
From the hills,
from the lake,
From the skies.
All is well,
safely rest,
God is nigh.

Go to sleep,
peaceful sleep,
May the soldier
or sailor,
God keep.
On the land
or the deep,
Safe in sleep.

Love, good night,
Must thou go,
When the day,
And the night
Need thee so?
All is well.
Speedeth all
To their rest.

Fades the light;
And afar
Goeth day,
And the stars
Shineth bright,
Fare thee well;
Day has gone,
Night is on.

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

I never knew there were words to Taps. On Google, I just heard The first verse sang and it made me cry. It is beautiful. Thank you.
