Remember

Memorial Day Tribute

TAPS

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.


Lights Out.

Please remember to observe a minute of silence for the
National Moment of Remembrance at 3 P.M.
your local time to honor our Nations Fallen.

  4. Thank you for this wonderful reminder. My husband was in the military. I'm so lucky he made it through safe and sound. But I feel for those families who have lost their loved ones. So very very much. Beautiful post.
