Guard installations as well as Naval and Coast Guard ships at port and at sea will. toll their bells at the Eleventh Hour of this day to honor those who wore the uniform. one hundred years ago,To Inspire the Future by Remembering our Past. One hundred years ago bells from steeples perched all over the world rang out in relief and joy sorrow. and hope at news of the great Armistice, The war was over but the hard work of peace lay ahead Families homes and cities lay in ruins.
A whole generation of young men had been all but snuffed out And yet the survivors of that ghastly. war picked up the shattered pieces of their lives and labored to build better ones for their children and. their fellow citizens, Today our Bells of Peace ring out as a solemn reminder of the sacrifices rendered in World War I of. the courage shown on and off the battlefield of the respect given to both victor and vanquished and. of the grit and determination by men and women everywhere to win the peace. Let these bells also remind us of the sacrifices that following generations have likewise made when that. peace has failed of empty chairs at hearthside still lamented of wounds both seen and unseen still. healing and of the terrible truth that no war is inevitable that we alone must rail against the failure. of our own wisdom and set for our children a more hopeful world.

Let us pray, God and Father of all remember your mercy and look with your healing love on all. your people living and departed On this day we especially ask that you would hold. for ever all who suffered during the First World War those who returned scarred by. warfare those who waited anxiously at home and those who returned wounded and. disillusioned those who mourned and those communities that were diminished and. suffered loss Remember too those who acted with kindly compassion those who bravely. risked their own lives for their comrades and those who in the aftermath of war worked. tirelessly for a more peaceful world And as you remember them remember us O Lord. grant us peace in our time and a longing for the day when people of every language race. and nation will be brought into the unity of Christ s kingdom This we ask in the name. of the same Jesus Christ our Lord Amen,The people are seated. REMEMBERING A TIME OF WAR,The Book of Ecclesiasticus Sirach 44 1 15. The Honorable Reverend Emanuel Cleaver II,United States House of Representatives. Let us now sing the praises of famous men our ancestors in their generations The Lord. apportioned to them great glory his majesty from the beginning There were those who. ruled in their kingdoms and made a name for themselves by their valor those who gave. counsel because they were intelligent those who spoke in prophetic oracles those who. led the people by their counsels and by their knowledge of the people s lore they were. wise in their words of instruction those who composed musical tunes or put verses in. writing rich men endowed with resources living peacefully in their homes all these. were honored in their generations and were the pride of their times Some of them. have left behind a name so that others declare their praise But of others there is no. memory they have perished as though they had never existed they have become as. though they had never been born they and their children after them But these also were. godly men whose righteous deeds have not been forgotten their wealth will remain. with their descendants and their inheritance with their children s children Their. descendants stand by the covenants their children also for their sake Their offspring. will continue forever and their glory will never be blotted out Their bodies are buried. in peace but their name lives on generation after generation The assembly declares their. wisdom and the congregation proclaims their praise. THE ANTHEM,Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep,Lyrics by Mary Elizabeth Frye.
Video Original Score and Direction by Edward Bilous. Founding Director Center for Innovation in the Arts The Julliard School. The Cathedral Choir,World War I Centennial Orchestra. Do not stand at my grave and weep,When you awaken in the morning s hush. I am not there I do not sleep,I am the swift uplifting rush. I am a thousand winds that blow,Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the diamond glints on snow,I am the soft stars that shine at night.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am the gentle autumn rain,I am not there I did not die. Rouge Bouquet,by Joyce Kilmer,Mr John D Monahan Commissioner. United States World War I Centennial Commission, In a wood they call the Rouge Bouquet There is on earth no worthier grave. There is a new made grave to day To hold the bodies of the brave. Built by never a spade nor pick Than this place of pain and pride. Yet covered with earth ten metres thick Where they nobly fought and nobly died. There lie many fighting men Never fear but in the skies. Dead in their youthful prime Saints and angels stand. Never to laugh nor love again Smiling with their holy eyes. Nor taste the Summertime On this new come band,St Michael s sword darts through the air.
For Death came flying through the air,And touches the aureole on his hair. And stopped his flight at the dugout stair,As he sees them stand saluting there. Touched his prey and left them there,His stalwart sons. Clay to clay,And Patrick Brigid Columkill,He hid their bodies stealthily. Rejoice that in veins of warriors still,In the soil of the land they fought to free.
The Gael s blood runs,And fled away,And up to Heaven s doorway floats. Now over the grave abrupt and clear,From the wood called Rouge Bouquet. Three volleys ring,A delicate cloud of bugle notes. And perhaps their brave young spirits hear,That softly say Farewell Farewell. The bugle sing,Comrades true born anew peace to you.
Go to sleep Go to sleep,Your souls shall be where the heroes are. Slumber well where the shell screamed and fell,And your memory shine like the morning star. Let your rifles rest on the muddy floor,Brave and dear. You will not need them anymore,Shield us here,Danger s past. Now at last,Go to sleep,Ms Susan Sloan,Assistant Regional Director AJC Washington.
I love that the Lord should hear my voice and my supplications. Because He hath inclined His ear unto me therefore will I call upon Him all my days. The cords of death compassed me and the straits of the nether world got hold upon me I. found trouble and sorrow, But I called upon the name of the Lord I beseech thee O the Lord deliver my soul. Gracious is the Lord and righteous yea our God is compassionate. The Lord preserveth the simple I was brought low and He saved me. Return O my soul unto Thy rest for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death mine eyes from tears and my feet from. I shall walk before the Lord in the lands of the living. I trusted even when I spoke I am greatly afflicted. I said in my haste All men are liars, How can I repay unto the Lord all His bountiful dealings toward me.
