I put on her colors with honor
And carried them over the sea
To battle at the mouth of the devil's tunnels
Are you safe back home praying for me
And do you still use the same words you taught me
That you learned at the Dear Savior's knee
On that sweet morning there in the garden
And are you safe back home praying for me

How long (how long)
How long (how long)
Will the words of this prayer be my hope
If it be His will and I'm the leopard that will
We'll say Amen together I know

On patrol in the cold of this desert
I trembled as I waited for my relief
And I picture a circle of family
Are you safe back home praying for me

Chorus

How long (how long)
How long (how long)
How long (how long)
How long (how long)
How long (how long)
How long
