Hymn

My Country, ‘Tis of Thee | Hymn #339

1. My country, ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
From ev’ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!

2. My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills.
My heart with rapture thrills
Like that above.

3. Let music swell the breeze
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom’s song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.

4. Our fathers’ God, to thee,
Author of liberty,
To thee we sing;
Long may our land be bright
With freedom’s holy light.
Protect us by thy might,
Great God, our King!

Lesson

Suitable for All Ages

Begin by watching this video. Before you press play, ask everyone to think about what veterans sacrifice to serve.

Ask: What are some things veterans sacrifice to serve?

Read aloud: Veterans Day is celebrated every year to honor those who have served in the military. Our veterans sacrifice so much to serve. They leave their families and go to very dangerous parts of the world. They fight for our freedom so we can live in safety and peace.

It is important that we honor the sacrifice of veterans.

Ask: What are some ways we can honor our veterans?

If you have had family members who have served in the military, show some pictures and share stories. If you do not, talk about the leaders of the Church who have served. Finish the lesson by bearing your testimony of sacrifice and freedom.
