Beholding Beyond Words






 Beholding Beyond Words To Our Servicemen And Women
Stationed Around The World In Far Away Places
There's Not Much We Can Say To Thank Them Enough
For What They Go Thru Each Day In The Rough
  But: Give Them Our Thanks
Give Them Our Love
Give Them Our Regards
For a Safe Return


 We Praise and Raise Our Hands To You
Who Earned the Honor That We Now Bestow
We Salute You For A Job Bravely Done
 And Applaud Your Courage In The Face Of The Unknown

  Defending Freedom
  Defending Liberty
 Defending Peace
  At Home And Abroad


 For The Past, Present, And Future Generations
 Duty Will Always Be An Honorable Citation
 To Stand The Ground That Freedom Upholds
  To Endure Engagements Where Ever They Unfold
 Defending Freedom
 Defending Liberty
  Defending Peace
 At Home And Abroad

 For Those MIAs, POWs,
 Fallen Soldiers, Who Gave All They Could
  We Will Search For As Long As It Takes
 You Are Not Forgotten And Will Always Be
 In Our Hearts
  In Our Prayers
 In Our Minds
 For All Time


  These Immortalized Soldiers Whose Bravery Abounds
 They Are Sisters, Brothers — Heroes Profound
  They Enlisted For The Duty At Hand
 To Serve The Cause Of Country And Land

 They Serve With Honor
 They Serve With Valor
 They Serve With A Pride
 That Will Change Them Forever





To Our Forces Standing Tall And Proud They Be
 Our Country's Behind Them In A Solemn Sea
  So Let The Flags Of Freedom Fly
 Unfurled In Their Majesty High

In The Sun
 In The Rain
 In The Wind
 Across This Land




  These Are The Things Our Country's Made of
 These Are The Things We Cherish And Love
  So Let The Flags Of Freedom Fly
 Unfurled In Their Majesty High

In The Sun
 In The Rain
 In The Winds
 For All Time
