A White Cross Marks The Grave

print

Many thousand miles away in that land across the sea
There are soldier boys their precious lives they give
So their loved ones here back home many miles across the foam
Might have liberty each padding day to live

May they sleep forevermore
Where a white cross stands to mark the soldiers grave
May their spirits be at rest
They have done their part with hearts so true and brave

May the ones who have gone on be remembered here back home
In the hearts of those whom they will see no more
They will wait until that day when they hear the trumpet play
Then they’ll march again upon that golden shore
