[Musical Arrangement: Ted Kirkpatrick All instruments played by Ted Kirkpatrick]
Between the years of 1861-1865,
Over 620,000 Americans died from gunshot,
Disease or sickness
In the bloodiest battles of our nations history -
The Civil War.
Through the instrument of prejudice,
Fear and hate,
A different battle rages on to this day.
But in Christ, we are all one people -
United in our commitment to God and each other -
Because it is He who First loved us...
