Readings for Veterans

Here are some readings that can be used at the funeral or memorial service for Veterans.


While there are no official words for taps these are some popular verses that can be read during the service.

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 soldier or sailor, God keep.

On the land or in the deep,

Safe in sleep.

Fades the light, and afar

Goeth day, and the stars shineth bright.

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.

Final Verse of the United States Marine Corp Hymn

Here's health to you and to our Corps

Which we are proud to serve;

In many a strife we've fought for life

And never lost our nerve;

If the Army and the Navy

Ever look on Heaven’s scenes;

They will find the streets are guarded

By The United States Marines.
