Fareham Churches Remember...

A century passes, memories will fade;
war's sun goes down, sharp pain is hid in shade.
Yet we still pray for peace, as those men prayed;
we will remember, we will remember.

Ten times ten thousand fell amid that rage.
What is the gain we measure from that age,
once reaped from carnage on that harrowed stage?
we will remember, we will remember.

While some were buried, others have no grave,
unmarked they fell yet all, we say, were brave,
and still we stand in thanks for all they gave:
we will remember, we will remember.

Then let us work, and move and strive for peace
until the grace of God can bring release,
and then all nations sing and never cease:
we will remember, we will remember.
