A Soldier’s Prayer

It’s time to sleep
I’ve been relieved

My rifle at my side
My knife in it’s sheath

Lord let me live another day
As I put myself in harms way

I made my choice, I took the oath
I stand for freedom, but I don’t boast

My God, my country, my family
The things I hold so dear

With these all on my side
There’s nothing for me to fear

But if I should fall before my next relief
I will stand before you Lord with honor and dignity

So, while I’m here please make me strong
To fight the battles and right what’s wrong

God Bless America
