Christian Memorial Day Poems

Updated on December 16, 2016

A Great Choice of Christian Poems

These are some of my favorite Christian Memorial Day poems. They are appropriate to use in any church program or salute to our loved ones who are fighting or have fought in the armed forces. I have worked with many organizations and church groups in the past and present. These selections have been enjoyed by a number of them.

Thank God


Thank God,

For the citizens,

Of the USA!


Who put their lives

On the line,

Each

And everyday.

Who walk in bravery

Every

Step of the way,

Thank God,

For the citIzens,

Of the USA!


Thank God,

For the citizens,

Of the USA!

Who sacrifice,

Their lifelong stay

To cut it short,

At any day,

For the Peace,

And the Freedom,

Of us,

Who in,

Homeland stay.


Thank God,

For the citizens,

Of the USA!

D.Alsup



PATRIOTISM


Breathes there the man with soul so dead,

Who never to himself hath said,

"This is my own, my native land?"

Whose heart hath ne'er within him burned,

As home his footsteps he hath turned,

From wondering on a foreign strand?

If such there breathes, go, mark him well:

For him no minsterel raptures swell:

High tho' his titles, proud his name,

Boundless his wealth as wish can claim,

Despite those titles, power and pelf,

The wretrch, concerted all in self,

Living, shall forfeit fair renown,

And, doubly dying, shall go down

To the vile dust from wench he sprung,

Unwept, unhorned, and unsung.

Sir Walter Scott



Let the Flag Wave


Let the flag wave! Aye, let it wave on high,

It's red and white and blue against the sky!

From crest and casement, board and bright and brave,

Let the flag wave!


Let the flag wave! Aye, let it wave above

The hills and valleys of the land we love

And o'er the sea, to no mad tyrant slave,

Let the flag wave!


Let the flag wave! Aye, let it's glory shine!

Let the flag wave, a symbol and a sign!

To guard our honor and to shield and save,

Let the flag wave!


Let the flag wave! Aye, wave in all men's sight,

It's stars unsullied as the stars of night:

It's stripes unblemished; only this we crave-

Let the flag wave!

New York Sun.



Your Flag and My Flag


Your flag and my flag!

And oh, how much it holds-

Your land and my land-

Secure within it's folds!

Your heart and my heart

Beat quicker at the sight:

Sun-kissed and wind-tossed--

Red, white and blue,

The one flag --the great flag--the flag for me and you--

Glorified all else beside--the red and white and blue!

Wilbur D. Nesbit.



We'll Scatter the Blooms of Maytime


We'll scatter the blooms of Maytime

Over each silent grave,

Letting their fragrant beauty

Honor the true and the brave.


Green are the beds of glory

Where the heroes are resting today;

Bright is their hollowed story

That never shall pass away.


We'll scatter the blooms of Maytime

With memories forever dear,

That linger in golden beauty


Throughout every passing year;

Not as these lovely blossoms

Whose brightness is for a day,

But ever through life's deep hours,

We'll cherish their fame for aye.



"INVICTUS"

 

Out of the night that covers me

black as the pit from pole to pole

I thank whatever Gods may be

for my unconquerable soul

 

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud

Under the bludgeonings of chance

my head is bloody, but unbowed

 

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

looms but the horror of the shade

and yet the menace of the years

finds, and shall find me, unafraid

 

It matters not how straight the gate

how charged with punishments the scroll

        I am the master of my fate

        I am the captain of my soul

                                    by William Earnest Henley
