Lest We Forget
Australian Air Force
My God this night I have to fly and ere I leave the ground; I come with reverence to thy throne where perfect peace is found.
I thank thee Lord for the life I've had, for home and all all it's love, I thank thee for the faith I have; which cometh from above.
Come with me now into the air be with me when I fly, guide thou each move I make way up there in the sky and should it be my time to die, be with me at the end, help me die a Christians death. On thee God I depend.
Then as I leave this mortal frame from human ties set free.
Receive my soul O God of love, I humble come to thee.
