Well, Happy Monday Yal’ll, just barely. Today is a day to remember all those soldiers who have given their all. For me, its personal as it is to many of you, given that our nation armed forces are active and deployed. I pray God’s watch over each man and woman who have volunteered to serve and I pray for each family who have over the generations sacrificed.
Kneel Where Our Loves Are Sleeping
Words by G.W.R. Music by Mrs. L. Nella Sweet published 1867
Kneel where our loves are sleeping, Dear ones days gone by,
Here we bow in holy reverence, Our bosoms heave the heartfelt sigh.
They fell like brave men, true as steel, And pour’d their blood like rain We feel we owe them all we have, And can but weep and kneel again.
Here we find our noble dead, Their spirits soar’d to him above,
Rest they now about his throne, For God is mercy, God is love.
That dying we may ask of him, To open the gate and let us in.
Kneel where our loves are sleeping,
They lost but still were good and true,
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. – John 15:12-13
