Ellen Bailey Poems

Because of the Brave

by Ron Tranmer

America, the beautiful,
home of the brave and free.
A land that God, our Father,
has given you and me.

He knows that in our world,
freedom always has it’s price,
and can easily be lost,
without fight and sacrifice.

So with a love of country
our bravest give their all,
Many even life itself…
We’re grateful to them all.

Our Army, Navy, National Guard,
Air Force and Marines.
Present and past…all have made
our bell of freedom ring.

We thank them for their sacrifice
and pray to God above,
that they may know the greatness
of our gratitude and love

Because of them, our nations flag
will ever proudly waive.
And we are still home of the free
because of them… The brave.
