"If I Die Before You Wake"

Back home now I know you're prob'ly sleepin',
Over here it's the middle of the day.
I finally found some time to write a letter,
Sittin' here a half a world away.

I heard about all them folks protestin',
As if I really want this war.
But that don't stop me from believin'
There's just some things worth fightin' for.

And if I die before you wake,
I pray the world will take
A good look at what God's given us.

If we could only understand
Everything is in His hands.
All we need is a little faith and trust.
I want you to know it ain't too high a price to pay
If I die before you wake.

Tell everybody that I miss them,
and I can't wait to get back home.
But until then, I'll serve my country
and be proud to wear this uniform.

And if I die before you wake,
I pray the world will take
A good look at what God's given us.

If we could only understand
Everything is in His hands.
All we need is a little faith and trust.
I want you to know it ain't too high a price to pay
If I die before you wake.

No, it ain't too high a price to pay
if I die before you wake.

Song by Dustin Evans. See a video tribute.

For my brother Ben, and for all the men and women of the U.S. military fighting for democracy and freedom overseas. Stay safe. Come home soon.

-Jon
