A poignant, respectful memorial song for an American serviceman. This song expresses my firm belief that while our fallen comrades memory live on in our hearts, their endearing spirit lives on in their heavenly home. The song "Taps" is blended into this song. Go to the VIDEOS page to see a music video of this song.This song is perfect for singing or playing at a military funeral or commemorative service. Especially appropriate on Memorial Day.

Soldier, Good-bye

Soldier, good-bye.  Soldier, good-bye.
Your memory we'll protect with honor and respect,
With tears, as years go by.
                                                              
Soldier, good-bye. Soldier, good-bye.
Rest in peace above, in His endless love.
We'll miss you dear soldier, good-bye.

Birth begins a journey to a place unknown.
Death reveals it clearly: God with open arms says,
"Welcome home!"

Soldier, good-bye. Soldier, good-bye.
You'll see a bright new dawn. Your spirit will live on.
So you don't truly die.


Soldier, good-bye. Soldier, good-bye. 
Rest in peace above, in His endless love.
We'll miss you dear soldier, good-bye.
