ANZAC DAY PROMISE

..ANZAC DAY PROMISE..
Men of ANZAC,bold and true,
We shall keep your memory bright,
Conquering all you had to do,
Torchbearers of freedoms light.
Through the long eventful years,
Still your victories fan the flames,
Which ever burn,amid the tears,
Immortalising all your names.
In the tempering heat of war,
Youth was forged into the sword,
So bravely used, until men saw that all could live,
Within GODS word. Ever in the years to be,
We do vow to keep your aim,
Peace on earth,eternally,
JUSTICE will be for all,the same.
