Soldier's Prayer


Dear God, I need Your Help to do...
My duty in this war... To win the kind of peace
that will... Endure for ever-more... Give
me the strength to use my gun... With steady
aim and true... And guide me in all other
things... A soldier has to do ... Let
not my eyes grow weary now... Let
not my stomach ache... And if the going
gets too tough... Let not my spirit break...
Watch over all my loved ones, God
... While I am over here... See that they never
are in want... Or have a single fear...And
when the air is still once more...
And we no longer roam... I pray that I
may be among... The soldiers
going home.
