A Soldier's Prayer
By: Jon M. Nelson
Now I lay me down to sleep,
And hope my dreams are thoughtful and deep.
I pray that tonight I’m not awaken,
By bombs exploding and the ground shakin’.
I hope that I can get some peaceful rest,
And wish that the next day will be blessed.
All I want is to sleep through the night,
So that tomorrow I’m ready for another fight.
I pray my dreams are of my family,
As I make sacrifices to keep them free.
May you watch over and keep them safe,
