PRESERVED

Lord, I come to you in prayer
Guide me through these tempestuous waters
Keep my vessel straight
Safe from the jagged rocks
On my left and on my right
Through this strait
This test of my faith in You
Of Your saving grace
And undeserved protection

Preserve me whole
That I may praise You
Proclaim Your greatness to all
And catch, as in a net
Those who have yet to see Your glory

Welcome these aboard my tattered ship
Offer safe refuge to these floundering souls
Those shipwrecked, about to go down
Without ever knowing You

Transform me
That I may always give You praise
Let me ever hail the masthand
To raise the flag of victory
As a testimony to lost souls
Of Your saving grace

Preserve us whole
Prepare us for Your Kingdom

SONG FOR FALLEN SOLDIERS

Why did they have to die?
Each hero stepped up and said,
I will go.
I will protect you.

They were more willing
than brave.
What faced them
they met
with honor,
With the determination
to save others’ lives,
Not counting their own.

An intense struggle
became their lot.
Not turning back
became their practice
The reality they chose.

Kingdoms, nations, peoples
they carried on their backs
Whose destiny they handed to God,
With faith in the outcome.

When they fell
They counted not their loss,
But rejoiced in the safety
for those they loved.

Their sacrifice,
Preordained by God
is lifted before us.
They stand forever immortalized
as heroes.
Those who’ve kept us free.
Those whose first thought was,
I will go.
