A Soldier's Honor

Our lives are built upon a framework
The framework of privilege and freedom
Purchased through the blood, sweat and tears
Of our soldiers, these brave men and women
Possessing resolute spirits
Valuing liberty before their own lives
Sacredly and solemnly committing
To preserving the rights due mankind
Leaving the comfort and safety of home
Entrusted with a high and noble purpose
Blessing people throughout this earth
With peace’s hopeful assurance
Loving freedom and understanding its power
Being a symbol of that hope in the world
Accepting the possibility that fate may require
Their ultimate sacrifice to move freedom forward
And whether a soldier is spared to see his efforts
Bless others throughout a lifetime fully lived
Or whether he’s taken, amidst his service, back to God
Still having more in him to give
When an honorable soldier leaves this earth
He takes his place in Heaven
Having earned this mighty reward
Through the selfless service he’s given
For a soldier’s honor doesn’t end with his death…

Becomes his eternal legacy
An inheritance left family and mankind
Of the blessings of freedom and peace
