We said a little prayer today . .
a prayer for mates who died
and no-one here’s ashamed to say
there’s been some tears we’ve cried
for good mates full of zest for life
cut down while in their prime
amid the war’s furore and strife
now gone before their time.

We said a little prayer today
for all their families
and asking Lord for strength that they
can bear their sadness, please!
For parents who have lost a son
and kids who lost their dad
and wives who’ve lost their beloved ones . .
so tragic Lord, so sad.

We said a little prayer today
for strength and courage for
the mates and colleagues who must stay
away to fight this war.
We’re sure they’re sad to lose their friends
so help them bear the strain
that when one day this fighting ends
this cost won’t be in vain.

We said a little prayer today
for those who sacrifice
their lives in service in the fray
to pay our freedom’s price.
O help us God to realise
as tears flow for the lost
Our Peace and freedom is the prize
that’s won at such a cost.
With thanks and gratitude to Lt Colonel Jim Cosgrove, Senior Chaplain, 1st Division who has put into words and photos our respect and eternal gratitude to those who have paid the supreme sacrifice.
In the padre's words,
"Heroes don't wear capes, they wear camouflage and combat boots"
