Those who serve us today

By 24th October 2008December 9th, 2019No Comments

It is the year of our Lord 2008
Many souls have passed
Through that battlefield gate

We must never forget
That on some far distant shore
Good men are still fighting
Against all we abhor

As I look out the window
On this cold, winter’s night
Someone’s husband or son
Is preparing to fight

His fight is in the name
Of all that is just
Our liberty and safety
Are in hands that we trust

We may think that battles
Are over and done
But some mother is waiting
To hear from her son

As we offer a prayer Lord
At the end of each day
Let us never forget
Those who serve for us today
