Mother I'm leaving and I'm proud to go
Please don't be grieving I love you so
Here in this pocket over my heart
Is the Bible you gave me, your gift as we part.

My country needs me, you know that's true
Pray for me mother, till this war is through
God will protect me, you must be brave
Mother, I thank you for the Bible you gave.

--- Instrumental ---

Mother, I'm writing this letter to say
I love my Bible I read it each day
And when I read it my body's drawn near
The blessed scripture they love to hear.

Midst all this turmoil of earthly things
What peace and comfort the Holy word brings
Mother, don't worry I will be saved
Mother, I thank you for the Bible you gave.

--- Instrumental ---

Mother the battle just has been won
You'll have a hero now for a son
I have been wounded, left there for dead
That God in his mercy spared me instead.

My Bible saved me, it played it's part
It's stopped the bullet aimed at my heart
Your blessed present, my life has saved
Motherm I thank you for the Bible you gave...
