"Mansions of the Lord"
This song was sung by the West Point Glee Club at the end of the movie "We Were Soldiers"
The words to "Mansions of the Lord" were written by the producer/director of the "We Were Soldiers" movie, Randall Wallace and set to the music of Nick Glennie-Smith, who composed all the original music in "We Were Soldiers".
"The Mansions of the Lord"
"To fallen soldiers let us sing,
where no rockets fly nor bullets wing.
Our broken brothers let us bring
to the Mansions of the Lord.
No more bleeding no more fight;
No prayers pleading through the night;
just Divine embrace, Eternal Light
in the Mansions of the Lord.
Where no mothers cry and no children weep;
We will stand and guard though the angels sleep;
All through the ages safely keep the Mansions of the Lord."
