Soldier's Bible

(Pat Robinson, Tim Cooney)



When my father's time had finally come
He looked at me and said "listen to me son
This is my bible it took me through the war
It'll make you strong when the day is done"

Now I read that bible every page
Daddy was right about the need to pray
It helped me through the rough times
Just like he said it would
And I still carry it with me every day
I still keep it with me every day

CHORUS
(He said) "this bible will save you it will save your soul
When you are broken it will make you whole
Promise me you'll keep it close to your heart
A soldier and his bible should never be apart"

Well now I took my soldier's bible off to war
The enemy came in through my back door
And when that bullet hit me
It knocked me to the ground
And died on Psalm 144
Went in the pages of Psalm 144

CHORUS

BRIDGE
God has a plan he wants us all in heaven
That's why he stopped it and saved me that day
The bible tells us that we will be forgiven
As long as we continue to pray every day
That's what it says

It helped me through the rough times
Just like he said it would
And I still carry it with me every day
I still keep it with me every day

CHORUS

A soldier and his bible should never be apart
