Memorial Day

O! thus be it ever when free men shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation

Bleast with victory and peace, may the Heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserved us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause is just.
And this be our motto, "In God is our trust!"

And the star spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Fourth verse of the Star Spangled Banner
-Francis Scott Key
