i know how youve given
i know how youve bled
i know how youve carried
your wounded and dead
i know how youve lived
in the trenches of hell
i know how youve fought
whether sick whether well
i know what its cost you
in time, sleep, and strength
i know how youve suffered
as youve gone the whole length
i live free from bondage
because you stood strong
because you stepped up
to fight what was wrong
you stood in the gap
against those who enslave
you risked your own life
my life to save
thank you
