~ Dear Jesus, Help The Soldiers
Dear Jesus, this year we are feeling sad
With our soldiers struggling through,
We're wishing we could help them
And wonder what to do.
We know they are exhausted
And shivering in the long dark night,
They are missing their special loved ones
So lonely in the awful fight.
Lord Jesus in all the hurts and pain
Lift their tearful eyes up to the sky,
Send a little shining light to touch their heart
So they shall wonder why.
Can we help somehow, by all holding hands to pray
Someone, somewhere always on their knees,
Not just at bedtimes, but every day
Somebody praying for heart's to be free.
And then we too will be joining in the battle
For the war that is raging near,
Dear Jesus help us to keep on praying
To lift them up above the fear.
Give them smiles in the sorrows
And each warm sunrise, whisper some good news,
Please just slip Your secret courage
Into their great big loving boots.

"God sent each person into the world with a special
message to deliver, a special song to sing and a
special act of love to bestow. No one else can
speak my message or sing my song or offer
my love.... these are entrusted to me."
Quoted by Father J. Nash - 2001
