Journey home country boy,
The last trip you must take,
Tears are falling like the rain,
Many hearts now surely ache.

You are one of the fallen,
Faithful till the end of the day.
Through fate you are here now,
Life should not have ended this way.

Always ready and willing to give,
Even as you lay your life down,
Many will gather to honor you,
A fallen hero flags surround.

Journey home country boy,
The last trip you must take,
You served your country well,
Duties you ne'er forsake.

Mom and Dad's hearts are breaking.
Their child now gone forever more,
A folded flag to replace you,
Peace, their hearts sadly implore.

Look around and remember,
The proud young serviceman,
Gallantly standing in harm's way,
He answered each command.

Journey home country boy,
Hearts filled with sorrow ache.
Your journey has now ended,
You died for freedom’s sake.

Revelation 21: 4

And God shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes; and there shall be
no more death, neither sorrow, nor
crying, neither shall there be any
more pain: for the former things
are passed away.
