©This I ask of You
Dear Heavenly Father
This I ask of you...
Please give each soldier a special place in heaven
A soft feather bed to lie on...
A satin pillow for their heads to rest upon
The best food heaven has to offer to nourish their souls
The warmth of a hearth fire... to warm them
And a heavenly stream to cool them
And two loving arms to welcome them home
The knowledge that we are grateful for all they've done
Goodnight soldier dear, nothing more to fear
For you are home at last...
Rest in God's eternal love and peace
Thank you for allowing me to live free!
In Jesus most precious name,
