Lest we forget

Royston 1946 (Reading)



We remember them. They were so brave.
The price they paid. The life they gave.
For by their death they bought us peace.
They gave their life that wars may cease.

We remember You. You were so brave.
The price You've paid. The life You gave.
For by Your death You brought us peace.
You gave Your life God's wrath to cease.
