A Veteran's Prayer

Dear Lord, I've served my country,
My love for her is strong.
I've stood beside "Old Glory"..
When others thought her wrong.

I've joined in celebration,
And raised a toast to cheer;
I've pledged her my allegiance,
And sang her anthem dear.

I've wept for fallen comrades,
Who proudly fought and died,
The freedom they defended,
I cherish deep inside.

I'm proud I'm an American,
For her strength and peace I pray.
There is no greater country,
