A Soldier's Christmas Prayer
by Wendell Owens
12/08/07

I stood my watch till break of dawn,
thinking of family and home,
Alert and vigilant I kept my watch,
yet my heart within me groaned.

I thought of Christmas days of yore,
the presents under the tree,
the smells of my Momma's cooking,
and what that meant to me.

O' God I want to be back home,
and feel that Christmas cheer,
but I'm a soldier, and duty calls,
So maybe Lord, next year.

O' please my God, keep them safe,
the ones I hold so dear,
I ask you nothing for myself,
Cept' Christmas home next year.

And if I fall, just let them know,
I stood my watch for them,
Christmas next year will have to wait,
till in Heaven, I see them again.

with all my love, your Son





If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
