While a wife keeps track of each day in time.
Somewhere a Marine stands up to the foe
While a mother’s prayers ring sweet and low.
There’s an Airforce pilot preparing to land
Back home his son gives his mother a hand.
There’s a Navy sailor keeping watch by the sea
While her daughter wishes she could sit on her knee.
A Coast Guard Captain encourages his crew
While families sleep better and we do too.
Precious few can understand the military life.
Father protect them, carry them through
In battles overseas and our streets too.
Wrap their families in Your arms of Love
Giving them peace that is your’s above
Keep them safe bring them home very soon.
For those who fall Lord and don’t make it home
I pray Lord they know You to be welcomed to Your home.
