"Taps"

One of the sounds of  Memorial Day is the somber bugle tune "Taps" to honor the fallen of war.
Trim words to Taps
There are no official lyrics to the tune, but here are some popular ones:

Day is done, Gone the sun,
From the lake, From the hill,
From the sky.
All is well, Safely rest,
God is nigh.

Thanks and praise, For our days,
Neath the sun, Neath the stars,
Neath the sky,
As we go, This we know,
God is nigh.

Go to sleep, Peaceful sleep,
May the Soldier or Sailor,
God keep.
On the land or the deep,
Safe in sleep.
