Beholding Beyond Words

Jerry Calow

 

 


Beholding Beyond Words To Our Servicemen And Women
Stationed Around The World In Far Away Places
Therešs Not Much We Can Say To Thank Them Enough
For What They Go Thru Each Day In The Rough
 
   But: Give Them Our Thanks
   Give Them Our Love
   Give Them Our Regards
   For a Safe Return
 
We Praise and Raise Our Hands To You
That Earned the Honor That We Now Bestow
We Salute You For A Job Bravely Done
And Applaud Your Courage In The Face Of The Unknown
 
   Defending Freedom
   Defending Liberty
   Defending Peace
   At Home And Abroad
 
For The Past, Present, And Future Generations
Duty Will Always Be An Honorable Citation
To Stand The Ground That Freedom Upholds
To Endure Engagements Where Ever They Unfold
 
   Defending Freedom
   Defending Liberty
   Defending Peace
   At Home And Abroad
        
For Those MIAšS, POWšS,
Fallen Soldiers, Who Gave All They Could
We Will Search For As Long As It Takes
You Are Not Forgotten And Will Always Be
 
    In Our Hearts
    In Our Prayers
    In Our Minds
    For All Time
 
These Immortalized Soldiers Whose Bravery Abounds
They Are Sisters, Brothers Heroes Profound
They Enlisted For The Duty At Hand
To Serve The Cause Of Country And Land
 
    They Serve With Honor
    They Serve With Valor
    They Serve With A Pride
    That Will Change Them Forever
 
To Our Forces Standing Tall And Proud They Be
Our Countryšs Behind Them In A Solemn Sea
So Let The Flags Of Freedom Fly
Unfurled In Their Majesty High

    In The Sun
    In The Rain
    In The Wind
    Across This Land
 
These Are The Things Our Countryšs Made of
These Are The Things We Cherish And Love
So Let The Flags Of Freedom Fly
Unfurled In Their Majesty High
 
     In The Sun
     In The Rain
     In The Winds
     For All Time
