Tune: St. Anne

In contemplation on this day
Both pride and sadness grow;
We laud the courage on display;
Yet tears can overflow.
White crosses filling endless fields
Remind us of those lost;
We long for respite, that which shields
Us from war’s wicked cost.
We honour all who gave their life
And those who suffer still,
But yearn for ways to halt the strife,
And strength to find the will.
We can resolve to nourish peace,
To strive for equity;
To act with justice and increase
Our zeal for harmony.
Yet still the human spirit shines
Amidst this grief and pain;
We nurture, cherish that which binds,
So hopes for peace remain
