A NATION THAT GROWS

A NATION

For every Nation that grows,
There’s a war that destroys it.

For every battle that ends in victory,
There’s one that ends in defeat.

For every life that is saved,
A mournful farewell to the one lost.

For every Yankee,
Another Johnny Reb.

For every soldier marching off to battle,
A loved one left behind fighting the fear.

For every battle cry,
A prayer.

For every second of order,
An hour of chaos.

For every General Lee,
A General Grant.

For every war that destroys,
There’s a Nation that grows
