They Are Many

Strong is the courage, the courage are many
Time over time come, they are a plenty
Service to country and service to man
Free that we are, in this our own land

Hear the battle cry, thunderous roar
Voices all, as they rush the shore
Men and women strong to the core
It is done now, as it was before

See faces worn, see their tears flow
See their might all with aglow
Name them one, name them all
Years over time, in battle some fall

I cannot deny how proud I am
To be and say, I'm an American
Our flag flies high and dips for none
Watch in parades, see how it's done

Freedom comes with a price
Say it once twice and thrice
Let it ring throughout the land
They are the reason we stand

For love of country, for want of peace
I tip my hat for it is the least
Do I for them one, and do for them all
Many have fallen, many answer still the call
