JOSHUA'S SONG

Sheri Easter

Sheri Easter wrote this special song in memory of a brave little boy that touched her heart and was an inspiration to many, Joshua Lee Young (1999-2005). You can remember about Joshua by visiting www.caringbridge.org/sc/joshua


Remember Joshua led an awesome battle
Marched around the city seven times
The walls came down and gave him honor
'Cause he knew all along that God would lead his fight


Are you tired of fighting, weary soldier?
Lay your weapon down and rest awhile
I know you’re tired and weary from your battle
So lay back in God’s arms and rest tonight

You’re beaten by the raging war inside you
You’re stumbling 'cause your steps are getting weak
Your head hangs low and though a tiny smile escapes you
In your eyes surrender is all I see


Are you tired of fighting, weary soldier?
Lay your weapon down and rest awhile
I know you’re tired and weary from your battle
So lay back in God’s arms and rest tonight


Her heart is breaking as she holds him tightly
This war won’t last much longer she can see
She knows the final surrender won’t come easy
So she prays for strength and softly whispers
“Now you’re free”


Are you tired of fighting, weary soldier?
Lay your weapon down and rest awhile
I know you’re tired and weary from your battle
So lay back in God’s arms and rest tonight
