A MEMORIAL DAY PRAYER
 
 
They served and fought and died
                               so that we might be safe and free
 Grant him, 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 Memorial Day, 
              we offer up a prayer---
May the people of all Nations 
             be united in Thy care,
And grant us understanding 
                 and teach us how to live
So we may lose our selfish pride
                    and learn to love and give,
And keep us ever mindful 
                        of the fighting men who sleep
In Arlington and foreign lands, 
          so we may ever keep
 The "Light of Freedom" burning
                             in their honor through the years,
         And hear their cry for peace on earth
                resounding in our ears---
Forgive us our transgressions 
                         and "Oh, God, be with us yet"
Lest in pride and arrogance 
          we heedlessly forget.
 
                                                  --- Helen Steiner Rice
