In Loving Memory of My Great Aunt Lou

Farewell Soldier

By Autumn Irlbeck

“Your fight’s been long and full of pain, but you were strong, through your suffering. You’ve been so frail and yet your fate was that of a lion, fearless and brave.

Farewell soldier, you’re battle’s done, you fought real hard and so you’ve won. Farewell soldier, you’re not alone, God is with you, you’re goin home.

You got through the dark days by keeping your light constantly burning strong and bright  and now your light and the shadows hide because triumph’s yours and your God’s child.

Farewell soldier, you’re battle’s done, you fought real hard and so you’ve won. Farewell soldier, you’re not alone, God is with you, you’re goin home.

You’re a conquerer, you did not fear because you knew that God was near. You’ve reached the high place and the angels sing… “Oh death where’s your victory? Oh death where’s your sting?”

Farewell soldier, you’re battle’s done, you fought real hard and so you’ve won. Farewell soldier, you’re not alone, God is with you, you’re goin home.”
