We stand for brave and selfless friends,
who sacrificed today.
In our remembering, Lord give faith,
and teach us how to pray.

We stand for all who die for us
- and have no more to give:
those we have never met or known,
those we should not outlive.

We stand and honour lives laid down - 
futures that conflict stole - 
and sing of one who died to end
the warring in our souls.

We stand to gain a greater prize
than any war can claim,
if we can hear the Saviour’s voice
as he calls out our name.

You stand for peace and truth and light:
we pledge our faith for now.
And when you wipe all tears away
all nations’ heads will bow.
