Glorious Pride

A flag draped coffin on a stifling day
With somber taps that seem to say
A grateful nation, as your dead we lay
Into this earth, in a special way
Salutes your service, and the life you gave
Ev'ry sacred hour, ev'ry moment brave
When for pride and glory, to the task you clave
Determination on your brow engraved
More than life itself you held freedom dear
For it's noble call, laid aside your fear
Rest in peace now here, with a conscience clear
Glorious pride rides high, mid our glist'ning tears
