We may be very weary,
In these dark days of war
And say to one another
What are we fighting for?
The answer may be hard to give,
As last time you all know,
We fought for freedom, right to live
With a dreaded foe.
To think we are at war again,
Dreadful thought to know,
This time may be its not in vain,
So onward let us go.
Anxious days may lay ahead,
Bring sorrow or bring pain,
But if we pray with all our might,
We shall have peace again.
Peace will descend upon this land,
When every county’s free,
And every ruler understands
Peace rules not tyranny.
Written by Mary Rose Dury (née Dyer) during the dark days of 1940
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning we will remember
them. - Laurence
