"To Those Who Made the Supreme Sacrifice" - Baton Rouge Blue

You are my angel, my angel of light,
Like the stars up above, you shine through the night;
Whenever I am scared you come to the fight,
You are my angel, my angel of light.

Angels come to the light when their time is needed,
As they go to the light, their presence is greeted;
Angels in the dark, angels in the light,
Angels all around us with only heaven in sight;
The time has come.

They say the time has come to see the ghost,
The holy one indeed because he loves you the most;
My deed is done here,
Pass this word around that God is looking upon us;
With not a smile but a frown,
Listen to the Lord like he always says;
For the time has come upon us;
for him to make his ways.
