Can another know a Mother's Heart
as she sends her son to war
How she tries to stay so positive
not knowing what's in store.
Her heart is broken right in two
as she kisses him good-bye
And tells him, "Son, go with God
and in Him abide."
He can send Holy Warriors
to fight right by your side
They can even go before you
so trust God to provide.
I will keep the home fires burning
and pray for your safe return
So go with God, My Precious Son
for whom my heart doth yearn!
Watch your back my first born son
is the Father's first reply
And they embrace so lovingly
as he tries hard not to cry.
We men are built for such as this
we must protect and serve
It is our duty to God and Man
freedom we must preserve.
The ultimate price has been paid
with the giving of a life
So that others may life freely
and not have to live in strife.
So go with God, My Precious son
let Him guide your way
And bring you safely back to me
and we will celebrate that day!
