Service Means Everything

For Freddy and all veterans, and everyone who offers their selfless service to make this world a much better, brighter, and safer place. May God bless you; thank you for your service!

1. There are raging battles, in the world and in your mind.
And sometimes all you want to do is hunker down and cry.
But you stand and take it, ’cause you know you’re gonna make it.
You might win, or you might lose, but still you fight.

Refrain:
‘Cause you don’t sherk your duty.
You don’t lurk with your bootie
On the dock, waitin’ for a ship to come in.
You just keep it going
And give it all you got while knowing
The God you serve on earth is heaven’s king.
And as long as you live,
Your service means everything.

2. You might be a hero in a uniform.
Or maybe you’re an anchor, giving comfort in the storm.
And you stand and take it, ’cause you know you’re gonna make it.
Oh it hurts, but still you work to keep them warm.
Refrain:

3. We can make the peace in a world that cannot see.
We’re the keepers of the kingdom; in our hearts we hold the key.
So we stand and take it, ’cause we know we’re gonna make it.
God above sent his son to set us free.

So we don’t sherk our duty.
We don’t lurk with our bootie
On the dock, waitin’ for a ship to come in.
We just keep it going
And give it all we got while knowing
The God we serve on earth is heaven’s king.
And as long as we live,
Our service means everything.

As long as you live,
Your service means everything (2x).
