Thank God For Our Soldiers

In every war that's e'er been fought,
Young men have had to die,
While wives and mothers weep at home,
And everyone asks, "Why?"

But freedom isn't free, you know,
It takes an awful price.
Thank God for brave young soldiers,
Willing to make that sacrifice.

Young and tall and straight they stand,
Proud of who and what they are,
Willing to do what must be done,
They're America's best, by far!

Wherever wickedness abounds,
Where oppression shows it's face,
They fight for mankind's greater good,
To make this world a better place.

We must stand behind our soldiers,
Always lifting them up in prayer,
Asking God above to bless them,
And keep them in safety over there.

Each and every time you think of them,
Take a moment to briefly pause,
And thank God for these brave young men,
Who fight for freedom's cause.

Cindy Sheehan asked President Bush,
"Why did my son have to die in Iraq?"

Another mother asked President Kennedy,
"Why did my son have to die in Viet Nam?"

Another mother asked President Truman,
"Why did my son have to die in Korea?

Another mother asked President F.D. Roosevelt,
"Why did my son have to die at Iwo Jima?"

Another mother asked President W. Wilson,
"Why did my son have to die on the battlefield of France?"

Yet another mother asked President Lincoln,
"Why did my son have to die at Gettysburg?"

And yet another mother asked President G. Washington,
"Why did my son have to die near Valley Forge?"

Then long, long ago, another mother asked,
"Heavenly Father, why did my Son have to die
on a cross outside of Jerusalem?"

The answers to all these are similar:
"That others may have life, and
dwell in peace, happiness and freedom."
