Beholding Beyond Words

Beholding Beyond Words

 

Beholding beyond words to our servicemen and women

Stationed around the world in far away places

There's 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 MIA's, POW's

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 asounds

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 country's 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 country's 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
