Thank you, thank you to all the soldiers who have gone before us and those who are still serving us. Thank you to all those who are in harm’s way keeping us safe. May God protect you from evil and bring you safely home.
“They have laid aside their armor
For the robe of spotless white;
And with Jesus they are walking
Where the river sparkles bright.
We have labored here together,
We have labored side by side,
Just a little while before me
They have crossed the rolling tide.”
From the Hymn The Lights of Home by Fanny Crosby.
