Thus I am sharing this with you today, in the hope that we can all remember those who fought and died for us all in whatever war it was.
I'm only quoting the first and last few lines, as it is these that mean the most on this day. The poem is by Helen Steiner Rice and is copied from a book called Lovingly
They served and fought and died
So that we might be safe and free,
Grant them, O Lord, Eternal peace
And give them 'the victory'!
And in these days of unrest,
Filled with grave uncertainty
Let's not forget the price they paid
To keep our country free...
And so, on this Remembrance Day,
We offer up a prayer -
May the people of all Nations
Be united in thy care . . .
The final few lines are also meaningful.
And grant us heavenly guidance
As war threatens us again
For, more than guided missiles
All the world need guided men.
