Acknowledge and Remember

Remember, give thanks for all endings of strife,
remember the many who died, gave their life
to help keep the safety of neighbours and kin,
and freedom from cruelty, tyranny, win.

Remember, be praying for those now bereaved,
those living in shock, who have many years grieved,
the widows, the fatherless, parents and friends –
for sorrow from loss to so many extends.

Remember, give thanks for our safety, and pray
that evil will be much confounded today,
and pray for all those who are yet facing death
that they may grasp grace, and a future by faith.

Remember the Saviour who willingly died,
that we may come to him in peace to abide
remember his sufferings deep to atone,
receive his redemption, his sovereignty own.
