God of power
Justice and mercy
Stir up in our hearts
A spirit of gratitude
For those who have
Served our nation
In war and in peace.
May their love and sacrifice for country
Be returned by us
In care, support
And remembrance one hundred-fold.
God of compassion
Shield all who defend the cause of freedom
In our nation’s service
Gather our deceased veterans close to your heart
And protect those still in our midst with
Health in body and spirit.
Prosper the cause of freedom they served.
Inspire many to follow their example of self-sacrifice
Remembering that it is better to serve
Than to be served
