Memorial Day! Where would we be without JESUS?

In remembrance of all the men and women who have fought, lived through or sacrificed their lives so we may live, PLEASE honor them today with remembrance of the sacrifices they and their families have made. Fly your flags proudly and know that to be an American is to live free!

       Where Would We Be Without Jesus?

Where would we be without Jesus in our lives?
How would we live and care for each other?
Would we shed tears of sorrow
Wait with anxiety until the tomorrows
Of our lives passed us by?
Would we weep and sob of years gone by?
Would the crimes of war haunt us any more?
How would we live without Jesus in our lives?

What woul;d you do if your son was sent abroad?
Would you die a thousand deaths whikle waiting?
Or worse if your daughter or son did not return?
How would you live without the sacrifice Jesus made?
Could you carry on once more or would you die inside?
How can we continue to live without Jesus each day?
What will it take to make the world finally see
That without Him there is no lifewithoput Jesus in our lives?

When will we realize that crimes of the past still
Are those of the future, and lern from others' mistakes?
Where do we go to find Jesus in our lives, and not be alone?
How do I reach out and touch the ones I lost and protect
The ones I hold dear to my heart from acts of war?
Will we ever lay beyond the reach of terrorists?
When does enough finally come and peace reign the earth -
When will we all live with Jesus in our lives?

What do you pray for at the rising of the sun?
How do you wrap your day's end, in prayer?
Is it hemmed with the love of Jesus and cries for peace?
Or do you unmask more sins of the fathers on our youth -
Do you project blame upon the innocent and strip
Women and children of their families and men too?
Do you see deliverance from crimes of hate and war?
Do you really desire to have Jesus in your lives?

When will you fall on bet knees and say your prayers?
Have you given thanks to those left overseas?
It is but a matter of time that Holy wars devour all
And our soil is attacked because we have warred
And because we have protected others,  who
Who will protect us without the love of Jesus?
Will we bare the test of time or lose it all?
Is there life without Jesus in our lives?
