Sitting here in my garden...

Sitting here in my garden,
Enjoying the birdsong and early morning sun...
It's difficult to comprehend that for this Freedom,
Your Blood... and many others did run!

Yours was The Ultimate Sacrifice,
That no one else could make.
It was made to bridge the chasm between us and our Heavenly Father,
To build a bridge that NOTHING and NO ONE can break!

Yet... through the years that have followed,
Many have freely followed The Example You Gave!
They've laid down their lives and shed their blood,
And paid the price humanity's Freedom to save!

Thank You for these dear ones,
Who gave up family and home.
Thank You for these dear ones - and their loved ones who let them go -
So that I... and millions like me... can live and Freely roam!

Actually it isn't difficult to comprehend,
The sacrifice made.
For with each passing year,
I realise the enormity of the evil choices mankind has made!

The choices that are evil,
Are not the bullet, or the gun...
But the mind directing the finger to pull the trigger,
Whether it is defending Freedom, or a desire to curb it has begun!

So... as I sit here in my garden,
Enjoying the birdsong and the early morning sun...
Thank You for this Freedom,
Won at SUCH  A Price by so many - and Ultimately You, God's Dearest Son!
