Give me the greatness of heart to see
... The difference between duty and his love for me.
Give me understanding that I may know,
When duty calls him he must go.
Give me a task to do each day,
To fill the time when he's away.
When he's in a foreign land,
Keep him safe in your loving hand.
When duty is in the field,
Please protect him and be his shield.
When deployment is so long,
Please stay with me and keep me strong.
