Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

137. We're Parents of a Soldier

1 We're parents of a soldier whether knowing it or not
And whichever side they're on, they are the soldier that we got
If we have the chance to stop them but we never have them stop
Good parents we are not
We are parents of a soldier. We are parents of a soldier
We are parents of a soldier. Good parents we are not

2 We put them in a situation nobody could win
As we teach them how to kill, and then how killing is a sin
When they come out so confused that we're afraid to let them in
Good parents we are not
We are parents of a soldier. We are parents of a soldier
We are parents of a soldier. Good parents we are not

3 If we indeed were loving parents we would be the ones
Who would take away their bullets and would take away their guns
'Cuz we don't want phony heroes, we want daughters, we want sons
So we must be the ones
We are parents of a soldier. We are parents of a soldier
We are parents of a soldier, so we must be the ones.
