"The Last Full Measure of Devotion"

At Arlington, this special day
The morning sun lights every cross
Beneath each cross a hero lay
'Tis heaven's gain, though country's loss

Once full of life and young men's dreams
They listened to their country's call
And faced the battle's mournful screams
Then rallied forth and gave their all

The least we do, now, humbly pray
And hold them in our memories
Those fighting still, those gone away
At Arlington we honor these

So let the trumpets sound aloud
As we salute with flag and sword
And though with tears, we stand here proud
In peace they stand before their Lord.
