"It Is The Soldier" (Lyrics)

It is ..."The Soldier"...in the mirror,
Who'll say..."goodbye"...to me, today.
It is ..."The Soldier"...not the man, or boy,
Or, the little GI Joe...he used to play.

It is ..."The Soldier"...who'll take his first steps,
That I...have come to see.
It's for..."The Soldier"...Lord, I'm asking...
Make him...ALL...he needs to be.

For, it is..."The Soldier"...of this GREAT NATION,
That must face...the unknown.
It is ..."The Soldier"
Who...may not be...coming home.

But, it is..."The Soldier"...who gives us the Freedom
To stand...beneath....this Flag.
It is..."The Soldier"...who carries Honor,
And, makes this nation...Proud!

It is..."The Soldier"...that stands before me now,
Not...the boy...he used to be.
Take him...in Your Hands,
Use him...for Your Plans...
Make him...ALL...that he...can be!

But, please...don't take..."This Soldier"
Anywhere...if...You're not there.
Lord, make sure....he knows...everywhere he goes,
He is loved...and, we're...So PROUD!

And, please...don't take..."This Soldier"
Into the battle...of defeat.
If...he...has to fall...be it by Your Hands
Be it...ONLY...to his knees.

'Cause, God ...it is..."The Soldier"
That keeps...this Nation...FREE.
Yes, I know...it is..."The Soldiers"
Who...PROTECT...our Liberty!

It is..."The Soldiers"...that stretch...across this land,
Far...as the eye...can see.
It is..."The Soldier"...of the past,
It is..."The Soldier"...yet...to be.

So, please...don't take..."This Soldier"
Lord...he's EVERYTHING...to me,
But, if...he has to fall...bring "This Soldier"...Home
To ...the LAND...OF...THE...FREE!

'Cause, God...it is..."The Soldier"
That keeps...this Nation...FREE.
Yes, I know...it is..."The Soldier"
That...PROTECTS..."MY"...Liberty!

So, please...don't...take..."This Soldier"
Into...pain & agony,
If...You...need another "Soldier"...Lord,
Please...don't...take my son...
Take...ME !

My name is Susan D. Wiseman...just a housewife, with a music ministry...I'd like to share with you.

I'm an extremely patriotic person...my music ministry is called..."Christ-Centered Pieces".

ALL downloads are FREE....nothing is sold!

http://www.susandwiseman.com (homepage)

There are several Tribute songs ...God Will Prevail - "The Victim's Anthem"...9/11. "Remembering Pearl" ( Harbor ) & NEVER forgetting the souls of 9/11. Also, "You Rescued Me"...firefighter tribute video...and, more.

There's a new song up now, "It Is The Soldier"...in my son David's honor, now a soldier himself...and, my cousin Guy's memory.

My humble attempt to share my thoughts & prayers...and, Patriotism...in song, from a mom's perspective.

ALL downloads are FREE...and, my songs have now passed a half a million downloads.

Also, I'm now associated with a WORLD MEMORIAL-Sept.11-"Release of Souls" Exhibit & Concert Tour, for the next two years in North America, then the world...to remember those who perished 9/11 & support our nation's fight against terrorism. You can link & read all about this project from my homepage,too.

I pray it will be a blessing to you...and, feel free to share the site, with anyone you so desire.

I just wanted you to know...there are many of us, who SO greatly appreciate your service to our country, and, those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

I know as just an individual, it sometimes seems like there's "nothing" we can do...to really let our troops & veterans know how much we honor & appreciate their service.

This is just what I do...ALL...free...ALWAYS!

My Personal "Thank You"...to ALL who serve.

May something you hear, see or read, be a blessing to you & your's...and, lead to Christ!

God Bless,

Susan D. Wiseman
