Endless Sleep SO silent the brave Young men who went to war Sleep silently brave men In a far-off field Beneath pastures green Where once war was seen The scars of war run deep Beneath this now-quiet land No more the sound of gunfire Reaches their ears No more the sound of shells Exploding very near No more the cries of comrades In pain out in the field Now they are together At peace, in endless sleep This plot of land is home A little piece of England In a field far away Sleep silently brave men As we remember you today.
