I Hear the Drum Rolls Beating

November 21, 2008
I hear the drum rolls beating
And of men marching
I am a soldier of the past
My brothers being carried
I hear the lord calling down below

I understand the beating boots
My heart lifts into the sky
I hear the bang of seven saluting shots
And the cries of comrades gone
I lay my hand upon the casket

I feel my heart hit the sky

but be handed back to me
I hear the drum rolls of my lord

calling down to me
I understand the light given by those

who fought and died for me
I see greatness in their deeds
I feel their boots hit the ground
once again in heaven.
