I’ve done my work, I’ve sung my song
I’ve done some good, I’ve done some wrong
And I shall go where I belong
For the Lord has willed it so.
He knows my heart, my every thought
He knows what good, and what wrong I’ve brought
But, by His love I have been taught
The way to Him I know.
And so farewell my family and friends…I’ll take my rest
Where sweet wild roses grow.
“Once a Marine always a Marine”
Semper Fi!!! Ooh Rah!!!
