Night Patrol

Night Patrol


Armor clad, guardians creep

Keeping watch for those who sleep

Careful child, don’t make much noise

Men on a mission; God employed.



Beyond the river, evil creeps

seeking to devour those who sleep

Rest not brave men, save our souls

And one by one, the night patrol



For if we did let down our guard

It’s not just land they’d seek to scar.

They’d take our wives, our children too

They’d burn our homes and run us through



This is why you join and serve

For this night, you were preserved

Rise up brave man, take your sword

And slay the wicked all abhor.


For the men I served with long ago – few will ever know of your bravery.
