Please give courage to all our troops
Belgian, British, Americans, Canadians, French and others.
That for us all and Peace take their boots
Even if people do not bother
Or even call them villains
When they give their lives for us in strange lands,
Where hate, murder, and death come from assassins.
Take them back safe in their motherlands,
Give them Peace in body and spirit.
That they can survive these awful conflicts.
And if they fall or are wounded
Take them in Your fatherly care thereupon
They that did like Your own Son
And do us remind them in our prayers
Hearts, minds and hospital beds,
For whose that are to be upon cared.
Thank You, Lord, for these Heroes
Who do what seldom anyone does.
