Hymn suggestions for Memorial Day / Memorial Sunday

A selection of free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free) hymns and songs suitable for Memorial Day services.

"Free-to-use" means the words can be copied and sung to at least one tune with no concerns about copyright or performance licensing - sometimes in a limited setting.

Seasonal note

Memorial Day is an American holiday, which is observed on the last Monday in May.

Originally it honored soldiers who died in the Civil War. Today, it is a time to remember all of America's war dead.   Previously it has been called Decoration Day.  Hymns for Memorial Day services generally focus God's blessing and peace for the nation, as well as American patriotism.

A related event is Veteran's Day (occurring in November), which remembers all living servicemen and women.
