A MEMORIAL

Sometimes war is a death sentence

For soldiers defending our country

With the honor and glory given them

By our country should they fall

These men and women

Regard not heavily

This likelihood

Many put their faith in God

To protect them

Soldiers groomed by training

Impressed by duty

Go to war to protect

Our way of life

Freedom

We bow our heads

Before God today

To honor our fallen

Soldiers who peered into the future

Saw our country preserved

The rights of our citizens intact

We say a solemn “Thank you”

To these American heroes

May they rest in the Lord

BOUND FOR GLORY

 

Christ is my Redeemer

I come to Him when tears won’t flow

He always listens

Lifting my soul

I sense his response

It infuses my mind

He touches my heart

Healing me

I reach out to others, unafraid

I know this transformation

Is part of His plan

He sees in me

A helper in kind

To those who’ve lost their way

He’s given me rare gifts

Of patience and kindness

When someone stumbles

And doom seems sure

I go to Him

For strength and guidance

As many other Christians do

For our work is specific

Bringing others to Life in Christ

A safe place on rough seas

For our Captain is the Lord Jesus

On this ship bound for glory

Our election sure

We praise His name
