Memorial Day 2016

Memorial Day is the day we set aside to honor our war dead.  It is a day of reverence, reflection, and respect.


We stop to remember those men and women who died in service to our nation so that we may live in freedom.



The hymn Mansions of the Lord
lyrics by Randall Wallace; music by Nick Glennie-Smith

"To fallen soldiers let us sing
Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing
Our broken brothers let us bring
To the Mansions of the Lord
No more bleeding, no more fight
No prayers pleading through the night
Just divine embrace, eternal light
To the Mansions of the Lord.
Where no mothers cry and no children weep
We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
Through the ages safely keep
The Mansions of the Lord."

God bless our fallen service members - and may He comfort their families.
