In Thanksgiving for Heroic Service–A Remembrance on Memorial Day

Bell tower 05-27-19

O Judge of the nations, we remember
before you with grateful hearts
the men and women of our country
who in the day of decision
ventured much for the liberties
we now enjoy.

Grant that we may not rest
until all the people of this land
share in the benefits of true freedom
and gladly accept its disciplines.
This we ask in the name of
Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Book of Common Prayer, page 839.
