Poetry of Kansas

The Salvation Army
And Knights Of Columbus


The Salvation Army
And the Knights of Columbus
Have plowed very deep,
Furrow by furrow,
Where they have led
Other nations will follow
On the eve of today,
And the wake of tomorrow.
 
On the battle field plain
And the Argonne forests,
Like the rock of Gibraltar
Stood our sisters and brothers.
They cared for the sick,
The wounded and dying,
Beneath the planes in the sky
That dropped bombs down upon them.
 
The Salvation Army
All Americans now cherish
Likewise all members
Of the Knights of Columbus,
They gave all they had
For our gold stars in heaven
Who gave their today
For our tomorrow.
