About the song
In Honor of & Dedicated to my youngest son, David..."The Soldier."

In Memory of my cousin, Guy Lamar Mears, Jr. KIA Vietnam War Casualty.

In Appreciation of Soldiers, Troops & Military...ALL...Those Who Serve this
GREAT NATION!
Lyrics
"It Is The Soldier"


It is ..."The Soldier"...in the mirror,
Who'll say..."goodbye"...to me, today.
It is ..."The Soldier"...not the man, or boy,
Or, the little GI Joe...he used to play.

It is ..."The Soldier"...who'll take his first steps,
That I...have come to see.
It's for..."The Soldier"...Lord, I'm asking...
Make him...ALL...he needs to be.

For, it is..."The Soldier"...of the GREAT NATION,
That must face...the unknown.
It is ..."The Soldier"
Who...may not be...coming home.

But, it is..."The Soldier"...who gives us the Freedom
To stand...beneath....this Flag.
It is..."The Soldier"...who carries Honor,
And, makes this nation...Proud!

It is..."The Soldier"...that stands before me now,
Not...the boy...he used to be.
Take him...in Your Hands,
Use him...for Your Plans...
Make him...ALL...that he...can be!

But, please...don't take..."This Soldier"
Anywhere...if...You're not there.
Lord, make sure....he knows...everywhere he goes,
He is loved...and, we're...So PROUD!

And, please...don't take..."This Soldier"
Into the battle...of defeat.
If...he...has to fall...be it by Your Hands
Be it...ONLY...to his knees.

'Cause, God ...it is..."The Soldier"
That keeps...this Nation...FREE.
Yes, I know...it is..."The Soldiers"
Who...PROTECT...our Liberty!

It is..."The Soldiers"...that stretch...across this land,
Far...as the eye...can see.
It is..."The Soldier"...of the past,
It is..."The Soldier"...yet...to be.

So, please...don't take..."This Soldier"
Lord...he's EVERYTHING...to me,
But, if...he has to fall...bring "This Soldier"...Home
To ...the LAND...OF...THE...FREE!

'Cause, God...it is..."The Soldier"
That keeps...this Nation...FREE.
Yes, I know...it is..."The Soldier"
Who...PROTECTS..."MY"...Liberty!

So, please...don't...take..."This Soldier"
Into...pain & agony,
If...You...need another "Soldier"...Lord,
Please...don't...take my son...
Take...ME !
