The Bravest of the very Brave

Nigel Hallworth

THE BRAVEST OF THE VERY BRAVE


The bravest of the very brave

Were those who risked their lives to save

Men who thought it right to fight

Wounded men are never light


Though evil drives good men to war

We, who violence abhor

Must share their danger,

Feel their pain

And show there is another way.


For as we stagger through the mud

Our mangled burdens stained with blood

There is forgiveness from above

In spite of man, our God is love.
