God of mercy and God of Truth

Protect me through all of my youth

God of love and God of light

Protect my Mom in the night

As she marches while I pray

I ask in step her feet to stay

As she fights in lands afar

Keep me always on her heart

As I slumber and as I sleep

Counting cars and counting sheep

Sweet dreams I ask of pleasant days

Filled with love and filled with grace

And finally we will embrace the end

In the arms of my first best friend
