Comment: The ANZAC Legacy

Lest We Forget ANZAC Day Tribute…
(Written by Johnny Conway)
The ANZAC Shrine remind us, of our Country's gallant past,
Of the wars we've had to fight in, to make our freedom last,
It tells us of the courage, of the ones lost with regret,
Who saved our Country for us, I say Lest We Forget.

Our soldiers showed the spirit, no finer ever seen,
And we must always keep in mind, the things that might have been,
And we must never close our eyes, to what might happen yet,
We'll keep that spirit evermore, I say Lest We Forget.

Have you ever stopped to wonder, or to offer thanks and praise,
To those no longer with us, but who fought for better days,
Just what we owe can't be repaid, but this I know for sure,
We'll follow in their footsteps too, if there's another war.

But we pray to God that peace prevails, that we won't have to fight,
So I ask you please to bow your head, at the ANZAC Shrine tonight,
And recall our fallen heroes, all those we never meet,
And thank them for our freedom now, I say Lest We Forget.

Lest We Forget, they paid the greatest debt,
Forever we will hold their memory deep.
Lest We Forget, what might have been but yet,
The peace they fought to give us, we'll always fight to keep.
