Fair to Compare - v4

Though they are flawed
human motives blurred in time,
maybe they are not so pure of heart
as the One who climbed the cross

But fair to compare
their sacrifice for us,
for the greater good,
not focused on themselves

So many veterans
those who chose to serve
sacrificing all for us
that we would be free

Like Christ in service,
submitting their will,
Offering their lives for us
that we would truly live
