An act of remembrance at home

All may read this or another form of Psalm 23:

The Lord is my shepherd;
 therefore can I lack nothing.
 He makes me lie down in green pastures
 and leads me beside still waters.
 He shall refresh my soul 
 and guide me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
 Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
 I will fear no evil;
 for you are with me;
 your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
 You spread a table before me
 in the presence of those who trouble me;
 you have anointed my head with oil
 and my cup shall be full.
 Surely goodness and loving mercy shall follow me
 all the days of my life,
 and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old;
age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning,
we will remember them.
All          We will remember them.
 
Two minutes’ silence may be observed.
 
O God of truth and justice,
we hold before you those people
who have died in active service.
As we honour their courage and cherish their memory,
may we put our faith in your future;
for you are the source of life, peace and hope,
now and for ever.
All          Amen.
