We find the price for freedom
Buried in our ground
Brave sons and daughters laid to rest
Flowers scattered ‘round

For those who gave their precious lives
My gratitude runs deep
For parents, children, husbands, wives
My heart can’t help but weep

This day we set to honor them
To say a prayer or two
Our country mourns the shame of war
That has taken them from you

I hear the bell of freedom
Ringing out so clear
Because these soldiers laid to rest
Were brave, beyond their fear
