Day is done, gone the sun, from the lake, from the hill, from the sky. All is well. Safely rest. God is nigh.
Almighty God, with reverence and love, we gather here today to
Honor our departed Comrade.
Make us mindful of his faithful service to God and Country.

This Veteran was precious to our Country, one who heard the call.
He served to keep this nation free and served us all.
Now we come to pay respect to this honored Veteran.
In praising him, we praise them all who fought with sword and gun.

To you and every Veteran our gratitude will last.

You have earned your place in paradise, now rest where heroes dwell.
