~ The Price of Peace ~

Going off to war,
so proud and brave are they,
I saw one lift his voice to heaven
and softly begin to pray

Dear Lord, if I should die upon
a battlefield someday,
would be no more than I should do,
no less could I repay,
than give my life for my country,
help keep our nation free
from the evil of terrorism
Our land of Liberty.'

Then from somewhere in the crowd,
seeing them off that day,
A trembling voice rang out,
and this I heard her pray

'God, please do protect them
and bless their families too,
I just got word yesterday,
my other boy, is now with you.'
