Our Father, who are in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name,
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day, our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who
trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, forever.
Amen.

THE BRAVE SOLDIER

FROM THE DAY YOU WERE BORN I KNEW IN MY HEART
THAT YOU WOULD BEGAN A JOURNEY, WE'D HAVE TO PART.
FROM THE BEGINING SHOWING YOU RIGHT FROM WRONG
TEACHING YOU MANY THINGS TO MAKE YOU STRONG.
WE SHARED LOTS OF LAUGHTER AND CRIED MANY TEARS
AND EVEN THOUGH YOU CANT SEE ME, I SHARE YOUR FEARS.
WONDERING WHAT LIFE WOULD BE LIKE AS YOU BECAME OLDER
LITTLE DID I THINK YOU CHOOSE THE PATH OF A SOLDIER.
BEING THERE TO PROTECT ALL WALKS OF LIFE
EVEN IF IT MEANT BEING THREATENED WITH A KNIFE
NEVER KNOWING HOW THE DAY MAY END
A SCARED LITTLE CHILD MAKES A FRIEND.
AS THE SOLDIER EXTENDS OUT HIS HAND
TO PROTECT HIM FROM DANGER THROUGHOUT THE LAND.
MANY ARE UNGREATFUL FOR THE THINGS THEY TAKE FOR GRANTED
OR FOR THE MANY BLESSINGS THEY ARE HANDED
AS THEY LAY IN A CONFORTABLE BED
UNLIKE THE SOLDIER--NO PLACE TO REST HIS HEAD.
NO BLANKET TO KEEP HIM WARM OR LOVED ONE TO HOLD HIM TIGHT
ASK YOURSELF. IS THIS RIGHT? WOULD YOU DO THIS EVERY NIGHT?
THIS IS THE PRICE THEY PAY FOR US TO BE FREE
REMEMBER. THE BRAVE SOLDIER DID IT FOR YOU AND FOR ME
MANY OF THEM WILLINGLY HAS GIVEN THEIR LIFE
SOMEONES SON.
DAUGHTER HUSBAND OR WIFE..
FREEDOM HAS A PRICE TO PAY
NEVER FORGET THE BRAVE SOLDIER AND THANK HIM EVERY DAY
