Read the Memorial Day Sermon Synopsis here:
Pastor Hockley shared letters from soldiers/veterans that revealed their struggles with war and death, their desire to be remembered or their realization that they were saved for a purpose.
He also told the touching story of how Taps may have come to be. There are no official words to Taps, but this one of the more popular:
Day is done, gone the sun,
From the hills, from the lake,
From the sky.
All is well, safely rest,
God is nigh.
Go to sleep, peaceful sleep,
May the soldier or sailor,
On the land or the deep,
Safe in sleep.
Love, good night, must thou go,
When the day, and the night
Need thee so?
All is well. Speedeth all
To their rest.
Fades the light; and afar
Goeth day, and the stars
Fare thee well; day has gone,
Night is on.
Thanks and praise, for our days,
'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars,
'Neath the sky,
As we go, this we know,
God is nigh.
