Marching for Peace
Once again our nation is facing
A challenge, perhaps a war,
Again our military is marching
As they leave their country's shore.
Our troops are leaving friends
Their families must say good-bye,
And tears are stinging eyes
As through the clouds they fly.
Whether Army, Navy or Air Force
Marines or National Guard,
Our thoughts are flying with them
And we're praying extra hard!
We pray for their safe return
As they defend us once again,
Knowing our hearts are saddened
As we salute these women and men.
They'll protect our mighty country
As they travel across the sea,
Defending our country's ethics
Preserving freedom for you and me.
We pray for our President, George W
Hard decisions he has to make,
He faces each new tomorrow
Knowing all that he has is at stake.
No one wants this responsibility
Not one of us wants to fight,
We all want to bask in our freedom
And to follow God's eternal light.
As it states in the Book of Isaiah
The government shall be with the Son,
The Prince of Peace rules from the throne
Justice forever be done.
The zeal of the Lord will perform this
And protect us as we proceed,
To keep the freedom we treasure
As once, He planted the seed.
So with our troops now marching
Through the sands in the Middle East,
Our Savior is right beside them
He'll serve them a wonderful feast!
He shed His blood for our sins
As now our soldiers prepare,
To challenge the tasks before them
Knowing our Savior will be with them there.
Victory will be their cry
As they face the dawning of day,
But the fear will be eased with comfort
As our Lord leads the way!

1 Kings 2:31-33
31 Then the king said to him, “Do as he has said, and strike him down and bury him, that you may take away from me and from the house of my father the innocent blood which Joab shed.
32 So the Lord will return his blood on his head, because he struck down two men more righteous and better than he, and killed them with the sword - Abner the son of Ner, the commander of the army of Israel, and Amasa the son of Jether, the commander of the army of Judah - though my father David did not know it.
33 Their blood shall therefore return upon the head of Joab and upon the head of his descendants forever. But upon David and his descendants, upon his house and his throne, there shall be peace forever from the Lord.”
