Mark Knopfler - Weapon of Prayer

“In that land across the sea there’s a job for you and me
Though our presence there may not be found
We must stay standing there on the battle lines and pray
We must never lay our weapons down

We don’t have to be a soldier in a uniform
To be of service over there
While the boys so bravely stand with the weapons made by hand
Let us trust and use the weapon of prayer

Many thousands miles away someone shed there blood today
With a heart so true and brave they’re gone
To a war that’s yours and mine let us join the battle line
With a weapon that will save our home

We don’t have to be a soldier in a uniform
To be of service over there
While the boys so bravely stand with the weapons made by hand
Let us trust and use the weapon of prayer

And when the planes and tanks and guns have done all that they can do
And the mighty bombs have rained and failed
Still the helpful hand above, on the weapon made of love
And against him none on earth prevail.”

Mark Knopfler - Weapon of Prayer – 3:10 (I. & C. Louvin)
Album: Missing…Presumed Having a Good Time (The Notting Hillbillies) (1990)
