Stand Down,  Sailor

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
Special Air Service
1942

  1. Petty Officer, 1st Class Nelson was from my area of the country. A loss in our local Seal family is felt strongly throughout the greater Naval community here.
    May God comfort his family and friends left behind.
