You never lived to see
What you gave to me
One shining dream of hope and love
Life and Liberty
With a host of brave unknown soldiers
For your company, you will live forever
Here in our memory

In fields of sacrifice
Heroes paid the price
Young men who died for old men’s wars
Gone to paradise
We are all one great band of brothers
And one day you’ll see we can live together
When all the world is free

I wish you’d lived to see
All you gave to me
Your shining dream of hope and love
Life and liberty
We are all one great band of brothers
And one day you’ll see – we can live together
When all the world is free

Theme from “Band of Brothers”.  Words: Frank Musker, Music: Michael Kamen


Ecclesiastic’s 44

Let us now sing the praises of famous men.

All these won fame in their own generation and were the pride of their times.
There are some who have left a name behind them to be commemorated in story.
There are others, who are unremembered:
They are dead and it is though they had never existed,
as though they had never been born or left children to succeed them.
Not so our forefathers:
They were men of loyalty whose good deeds have never been forgotten.
Their prosperity is handed on to their descendants and their inheritance to future generations.
Their line will endure for all time and their fame will never be blotted out.
Their bodies are buried in peace and God’s people will sing their praises
