(Spoken)
Over the battle fields of all the great wars
Since the beginning of time Have walked perhaps
The bravest heroes of them all.
The men known simply by the soldiers as the Chaplain.
And this is the story of but one of the many
And many thousands who gave his life in the service
Of his God and his country.

(Sang)
There's a star spangled heaven for every soldier boy
Who fights to keep our country clean and free
So soldier trust in Jesus let him fill your heart with joy
He'll stand by you throughout eternity.

(Spoken)
An old, old army chaplain who was stooped and bent with years
Was walkin' o'er the battle field his old eyes filled with tears.
He was searching for the wounded to try to ease their pain
And for those he knew would never live to rise and fight again.
For life for them was over their earthly cares were done
They had gone to meet their Saviour their battle had been won.
And I couldn't help but notice as he went from place to place
That each soldier boy had died fighting with a smile upon his face.
And I saw him kneel beside each one and slowly breathe the prayer
While the tears were streamin' down his face
And the wind blew through his hair.
And I could hear the big guns boomin' o'er the hill and not too far away
And as I turned to leave him that's when I heard him say.

(Sang)
There's a star spangled heaven for every soldier boy
Who fights to keep our country clean and free
So soldier trust in Jesus let him fill your heart with joy
He'll stand by you throughout eternity.

(Spoken)
Though days and month and even years
Have slowly drifted by
And all we have are the mem'ries
Of our boys who have to die.
They're living with their Saviour beyond the crystal sea
In the Star Spangled Heaven throughout eternity...
