Dear God up in that massive sky;
Don’t let me sit at home and cry

To think that my poor lover went;
Just like the others that you sent

To fight this war so we’ll have peace;
So let us pray for it to cease

And when our boys come home someday;
I’ll kneel in church like this and pray

To thank the Lord for being free;
That he is home here safe with me
