A Soldier’s Heart

When dangers rise across the sea or on my country’s shore,
I’m sworn to do my duty; I’ll give my strength and more.
To keep the things that I hold dear, I’ll gladly join the strife.
I’ll give my blood, sweat and tears, and more, my limb and life.

I don’t claim to be a hero; I’m just an American,
Who loves his God and country, his family and his fellow man.
I choose to fight for what is right, and protect my native land –
Beneath the red, white and blue is where I take my stand.

Some people don’t appreciate this land or what I do;
They protest and even burn the flag to which I’m true.
They take for granted liberty and the price that must be paid
To keep the freedoms we enjoy and keep our foes at bay.

I don’t claim to be a hero; I’m just an American,
Who loves his God and country, his family and his fellow man.
I choose to fight for what is right, and protect my native land –
Beneath the red, white and blue is where I take my stand.

The eagle and the flag must fly, and justice must be done
To keep alive the dream we hold, and the vision we’ve begun.
And with the help of God above, I’ll fight on ‘til the end
With mustered strength and courage until I’m home again.

I don’t claim to be a hero; I’m just an American,
Who loves his God and country, his family and his fellow man.
I choose to fight for what is right, and protect my native land –
Beneath the red, white and blue is where I take my stand.
