Final Journey

By 20th November 2013December 9th, 2019No Comments

Through the streets of Wootton Basset
The soldier’s journey ends
This Christmas they’ll be sadly missed
By families, mates and friends

Our thoughts are with their loved ones
In this their time of grief
We celebrate their bravery
Alas their lives were brief

They died for Queen and country
Like many gone before
In two world wars and conflicts
Fought out on foreign shore

We join their grieving parents
Their wives and children too
We close our eyes in silent prayer
Then weep as mourners do

God bless all those heroes
Who fought on foreign land
And rest assured you left behind
They sit at God’s right hand

The debt we owe to all those men
We never can repay
So rest in peace you heroes
We pray for you each day
