Lyrics
Morning breaks on Arlington
Warmed by rays of golden sun
And all who pause in homage there
Feel a soft hush in the air
Those who love their liberty
Bow the head and bend the knee
And from their hearts they breathe a silent prayer
“Thank God for those who rest in honor there”

The lush green grass of Arlington
Shimmers in the morning sun
As pure white crosses seem to glow
Sentinels in perfect rows
Everyone who lives and breathes
Wonders at the sight of these
Who gave to us a gift beyond compare
“Thank God for those who rest in honor there”

Home of the eternal flame
Of humble heroes without name
Whose graves are guarded day and night
Keeping memory burning bright
Those who gave so much for us
Bravely said “In God We Trust”
Now they are safe in His eternal care
“Thank God for those who rest in honor there”

Our nation’s flag now takes the breeze
Waving over all of these
And heaven smiles upon each silent one
As morning softly breaks on Arlington
