A Soldier' Wife






A Soldier's Wife



Oh Dear Lord I humbly pray
For strength to make it through this day
As I lay to rest my heart . . . . My soul
Can you find a way my hand to hold


Oh Dear Lord I come to you
The car to take me will be here soon


As I stand between
What was ... and What will be


It is the 'What Is'


That I now must live
To be my reality


For freedom's call he gave his life


Lord . . .
I am proud to be a Soldier's wife
But I am not sure I can sit today
Before the ground where he will lay


His coffin draped in red white and blue
The soldier that did what he chose to do
But therein to will lay the mortal man
With the hand that wears still our wedding band


Upon the winds this mournful song


Oh Lord . . . . Please . . . .
Help me to be strong
For I AM A US Soldier's wife


... oh ... how am I
To make it to this night



The car is here Lord
I have to go


Please somehow bring the world to know
That freedom comes at great sacrifice


Please help me Lord





A Soldier's Wife
