A peaceful day

Phillipians 4:4-8

For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light shall we see light. Psalm 36:9
11.11.09

For your listening pleasure today...

...this fine version of Eric Bogle's classic song about the futility of war - And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda by Joan Baez.



Listen at 11 o'clock this morning and remember the men and women who have died while defending your country.

Here are the lyrics if you want to sing along, but bear in mind that there are a couple of profanities, and a lot of sadness in the words.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Thanks for this link too!
I always get quite teary in this song. " and the old men they answer the call" especially since all those old men, dear to us, are now gone.

Hi Jeanne,
Thank you for sharing!

The old men in our family are all gone, so it is particularly poignant for me.

Blessings,
Jillian

Just wanted to say that this is one of the songs that we listen to a fair bit in this household - way up here in Canada.

I know your rememberance day is over - but ours is about to begin.

Thanks

I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
