The Unknown Soldier

They placed a wreath upon my grave, today, in Arlington.
To pay respect to those like me who gave it all.
So many lying here with me defended the land we call the free,
Home of the brave, with God we rest in peace.

So easily forgotten, men like these, your lives go on.
Passing day by day, without a care where your freedoms come from.
Take a look around this hallowed ground, you’ll see the price we’ve paid.
Such sacrifice, don’t let it be in vain.

Chorus:
They were called to arms, made a valiant stand, there was fighting all around.
When the smoke cleared, there they lie upon the ground.
Still Old Glory stands flying proud above this land from sea to sea,
Bow your head to pray, for our fallen soldiers.
Bow your head to pray, for the unknown soldier.

Ten thousand soldiers, bless their souls, at rest in Normandy.
Many more took their last breath in lands you’ll never see.
So little now is asked of you, to pause reflecting on their fate.
Unselfishly, they died for freedom’s sake.

We pledged allegiance to red white and blue, eternally.
Vowed to defend, the U.S.A. for our posterity.
There’s an eagle watching o’er our shores, one nation under God,
With liberty, and justice for all.

Chorus:
They were called to arms, made a valiant stand, there was fighting all around.
When the smoke cleared, there they lie upon the ground.
Still Old Glory stands flying proud above this land from sea to sea,
Bow your head to pray, for our fallen soldiers.
Bow your head to pray, for the unknown soldier.
