RISKING IT ALL
For just a little while, let us leave the news of sad, renewed statistics and listen to those who are willing to put their lives on the line for the ill …OUR MEDICS and our MILITARY
There is more than one type of army. In recent days, ARMIES of MEDICAL PERSONNEL have put on their uniforms to help the sick and dying. Our grateful appreciation and THANK YOU to those in the medical fields working long hours under dangerous circumstances. They want to protect, heal and go home to their own families and lives.
When the people in the military put on the uniform, they also were saying, “This is my country, my people, and my world to protect in all circumstances.” Some went into the infantry; others to be medics,; some went to sea and some became pilots. The chaplains shared faith and encouragement. Others gave their talent to music. We, at Boyer Writes, also say, “THANK YOU” to our young and older military who decided to serve in so many areas.
For your weekend… the music of the West Point Band and West Point Glee Club: Mansions of the Lord from We Were Soldiers.
“Mansions of the Lord” is a hymn written by Randall Wallace and set to the music of Nick Glennie-Smith. Here are the words being played and sung by the United States Military Academy Band and Glee Club in the video below:
To fallen soldiers let us sing
Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing
Our broken brothers let us bring
To the Mansions of the Lord
No more bleeding, no more fight
No prayers pleading through the night
Just divine embrace, Eternal light
In the Mansions of the Lord
Where no mothers cry and no children weep
We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
All through the ages safely keep
The Mansions of the Lord
