Through All Their Preparation

Through all their preparation

Through all their sweat and tears

Through their final hours

Through their greatest fears

They have faced many enemies

In which they’ve paid the price

To fight for our freedom

An unselfish sacrifice

As we reflect on those times

On what they did that day

There’s not enough words

That can express what I must say

This is the greatest country

That will ever be

Because of what those fallen soldiers

Did for you and me

So as we give thanks

Let’s hold our heads up high

And place your hand over your heart

As Old Glory continues to fly

We commemorate you all

By thanking you today

For our independence

On this special day
