Prayers now rise to heaven
For all in life who serve
Battles for their country
As freedom is preserved

Each one of you our heroes
Who sacrifice each day
Life and soul with dignity
Such courage you display

Hearts are always with you
In any place you dwell
Saluting you with honor
With love unparalleled

Each day a special blessing
Upon those we call "our brave"
Our countries greatest freedom
With memories engraved

Thank you for this honor
You give with pride each day
Those of all our "seasons"
Will never fade away

For each of you our promise
Of all our freedom saved
Each battleground now sacred
By footsteps that were paved.
