US Memorial Day Rememberance

"...Here we bow in holy revrence,
Our bosoms heave the heart felt sigh.
They fell like brave men, true as steel,
And poured their blood like rain.
We feel we owe them all we have,
And can but kneel and weep again..."

From the Hymn "Kneel Where Our Loves Are Sleeping"

Words by G. W. R.
Music by Mrs. L. Nella Sweet
