Remembering Those Before Us
We remember those gone before, whoíve arrived on the eternal shore,
The soldiers of The God Lord above, are the soldiers, who I speak of,
Soldiers of Christ, great and small, who for The Savior surrendered all,
Surrendering for God their very life, this, in the service of Jesus Christ.
Today we remember and go forward, while in the service, for our Lord,
With the baton passed to you and me, now soldiers in the Lordís army,
Serving in the shadow of His cross, never mindful at all of gain or loss,
Not for an earthly purpose but His will, as The Lordís purpose we fulfill.
Remembering soldiers of the past, our service for Christ has been cast,
Upon the tablets of our very heart, knowing Godís Spirit will not depart,
Going forward with the Word of God, in battle are feet have been shod,
Along with a breastplate of righteousness, we today are Godís Witness.
With such a great cloud of witnessís, being our example of faithfulness,
Following them, we shall prevail, even as Satanís forces continue to rail,
Against The Church of Jesus Christ, with many paying the ultimate price,
Their life examples are in continual use, in advancing Godís Good News.
As His Church we remember those, in the past that The Lord God chose,
To build the Churchís very foundation, upon Christ to proclaim Salvation,
As His Church sharing Eternal Truths, with a world in need, we canít lose,
Remembering those who went before us, while we serve The Lord Jesus.

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)
