Praise the Lord for Veterans!

Our Veterans in November 2008

Thank you to all who served and our serving.  We love you!

IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE SOLDIER
It’s not CBS or NBC, ABC or CNN
that has given us the freedom of the press.
Not TV preachers, Larry Flint, Ted Kennedy, or Jessie Jackson
given us the freedom to verbally express.
Not the campus organizers or all the demonstrations
given us the freedom to march,
freely march and disagree.
Oh can’t you see?

Chorus:
It has always been the soldier
who has made the sacrifice.
Standing strong
and proud in battle.
Willing to
lay down his life.

Somewhere there's a soldier
And he’s looking at a picture
of his little girl,
How he wishes he were home.
And Somewhere there's a soldier
And he’s reading a love letter
from is wife,
And she is telling him
how she feels so alone.
And somewhere there's a mom and dad
Who'll cry late in the night,
For a son who
won't be coming home,
A son who gave his life...
Freedom isn't free!
Oh, can't you see?

It has always been the soldier,
Who has made the sacrifice;
Standing strong and proud in battle
Willing to lay down his life...

To the angry man who shakes their fists
And burns the stars and stripes
The same flag that drapes the coffins
of those who gave their lives
There’s no other place that you will go
Or you have ever been
Where the blood of soldiers gives the right
To burn the flag again.

It has always been the soldier,
Who has made the sacrifice;
Standing strong and proud in battle
Willing to lay down his life...
It has always been the soldier
On the land, in air, and sea
For it has always been the soldier
Fighting for our liberty

Yes, it has always been the soldier,
Who has made the sacrifice;
Standing strong and proud in battle
Willing to lay down his life...
Willing to lay down his life..
It has always
It has always
Been a soldier
