Joshua's Song

Here are the words to that beautiful song by Sheri Easter.

Remember Joshua led an awesome battle
Marched around the city seven times
The walls come down and victory gave him honor
Cause he knew all along that God would lead his fight

Chorus:
Are you tired of fighting weary soldier?
Lay your weapon down and rest awhile
I know you're tired and weary from your battle
So lay back in God's arms and rest tonight

You're beaten by the raging war inside you
You're stumbling cause your steps are getting weak
Your head hangs low and though a tiny smile escapes you
in your eyes surrender's all I see

Her heart is breaking as she holds him tightly
This war won't last much longer she can see
She knows the final surrender won't come easy
So she prays for strength and softly whispers
"Now you're free"

Chorus:
I know you're tired and weary from your battle
So lay back in God's arms and rest tonight
So lay back in God's arms and rest tonight

I found this commentary on another site. They make the words all the more meaningful:

Sheri Easter wrote this special song in memory of a brave little boy that touched her heart and was an inspiration to many, Joshua Lee Young (1999-2005). You can remember about Joshua by visiting http://www.caringbridge.org/sc/joshua

The MP3 is available here:
