  1. Soldier's Prayer

From the recording Soldier's Prayer

Lyrics

Soldiers Prayers              FEF  c.2008
 
When the face of my watch stopped keeping time
When the face of death joined in the fight
When the faces of comrades writhed in pain
Prayers were all that kept me alive
 
When our camp was shelled time and again
We felt obliged to return heavy fire
When our lives were in constant danger
Prayers were all that kept us alive
  
 
        Prayers to bear the unbearable pain
        Prayers to see morning’s light
        Prayers to end this relentless war
        Prayers to spare our young lives
 
When I felt the earth quake below my tank
When I felt the dark edge, I just might die
When I felt the heat pierce my body armor
Prayers were all that kept me alive
 
When we chased enemy round hidden corners
When we reached our platoon’s toll of five
When we grieved with families of fallen brothers
Prayers were all that kept us alive
