Stand Down,  Soldier

Rest in Peace

 

Give me, my God, what you still have;

give me what no one asks for.
I do not ask for wealth, nor success,
nor even health.

People ask you so often, God, for all that,
that you cannot have any left.
Give me, my God, what you still have.
Give me what people refuse to accept from you.
I want insecurity and disquietude;
I want turmoil and brawl.

And if you should give them to me,

my God, once and for all,
let me be sure to have them always,
for I will not always
have the courage to ask for them.

Corporal Zirnheld

It is through your ultimate sacrifice to our great country of America sir, that has *advanced liberty* and continued to keep us free. May God grant you rest in the arms of the angels and comfort to those left behind.
