Age shall not weary them,
nor shall the years condemn;
at sunset and in early morn
we will remember them.

For some in time of strife
as victims of a war,
in foreign lands, both near and far,
have yielded up their life.

Yet others now remain
still scarred by grievous shock;
diseased and tortured, often sick,
they face appalling pain.

Orphans and widows, too,
weep tears of bitter loss;
in vain they long for some caress
from those they loved and knew.

All these we now recall
before our God today;
as memories we now employ
enshrining great and small.

And yet a calm repose
uplifts the trusting soul;
for faith and love shall still prevail
through Christ who died and rose.
