Soldiers Last Letter

The postman delivered a letter

It filled her old heart full of joy

But she didn't know til she read the inside

It was the last one from her darling boy.

Dear Mom, was the way that it started

I miss you so much, it went on

Mom, I didn't know, that I loved you so

But I'll prove it when this war is won.

I'm writing this down in a trench, Mom

Don't scold if it isn't so neat

Just say as you did, when I was a kid

And came home with mud on my feet.

The captain just gave us our orders

And now, we will carry them through.

I'll finish this letter the first chance I get

But now I'll just say I love you.

The dear old mother’s hands began to tremble

And she wiped back the tears from her eyes

But they came unashamed for there was no name

And she knew that her darling had died.

That night as she knelt by her bedside

She prayed Lord above hear my plea

And protect all the sons that are fighting tonight

And dear God keep America free.

Sgt. Henry Stewart and Ernest Tubb


The effectual fervent prayer


of a righteous man availeth much. 


James 5:16
