If Soldiers Did Not Sacrifice

If soldiers did not sacrifice
The blood within their veins
If true loves were not left at home
To never see again
If armies were not marshaled
To meet an evil foe
Then right would lose and wrong would win
Our freedom then would go.
If men and women, black and white
And every other hue
Did not put on the uniform
And to their pledge be true
To “defend the Constitution…
Bear allegiance to the same”
And live their lives with honor
Not causing any shame.
Then terror would continue,
Of that you can be sure
And all that seems so certain
Would be so insecure.
We take our lives for granted
We’re used to all our rights.
We work our jobs, we kiss our kids
Then sleep comfortably at night.
The things we count so precious
Would scarcely more remain,
If soldiers did not sacrifice
The blood within their veins.

“Give honor to whom honor is due”
(Romans 13:7)
