While They Are Gone
they are gone my Lord,
Protecting by land, sea and air.
Help us to not be afraid,
And not fall into despair.
We call upon your Holy name,
And claim your promises true.
To prepare the way for them,
As this mission they go through.
Walk with us while we wait,
Speak peace to our wounded hearts.
Let us feel your companionship,
Let your Spirit not depart.
You are the One who's in control,
We pray Thy will be done.
We'll give you the praise and glory
When the battle of war is won.
