The Cost of Freedom

text size A A A
Jack Wellman, 2013

Red, white, and blue we do display

For patriots gave their best

No greater cost did they pay

Do many now lay at rest

Washington, York, and even Lee

Without a second thought

So you and I are this day free

With precious price they bought

Thank you all who have thus served

Put life and limb on line

In hell on earth did not lose nerve

With patriot acts sublime

We thank you God for their strong will

From ship to parachute

Old glory flies even still

To you we all salute
