Dear Friend ,
A petition to your heart 
For a soldier of the Lord , 
Left in the field , wounded and hurt 
He is a young man , who was touched 
By the swords of sickness 
and now he lays in bed , 
with feeding tubes and morphine to drink
With unhealed scars and in pain 
In tears , in pain , and he is just seventeen!

His flesh is weak and hope is flickering dim , 
Bring dear Friend , your warm heart 
veiled in compassion and love , 
Closer to his bed and we pray to the Lord 
To give Him strength!
