I) THE BATTLEFIELD WAS QUIET – NO SHOTS FIRED IN THE NIGHT-BUT, SOLDIERS ON BOTH SIDES LAID IN WAIT FOR THE MORNING LIGHT. AS DAWN WAS BREAKING ACROSS THE LAND, A FARMHOUSE CAME IN SIGHT AND, FROM THAT FARMHOUSE CRAWLED A CHILD – HIS PARENTS DEAD INSIDE CHO 1) NO SOLDIER DARED TO FIRE HIS GUN—NOT A SHOT FROM EITHER SIDE INSTEAD THEY WONDERED IF THE OTHER SIDE WOULD END THAT BABY’S LIFE HOW COULD THE WAR CONTINUE WHEN THAT CHILD WOULD SURELY DIE AND, SO, THEY WAITED BREATHLESSLY IN REVERENCE FOR HIS LIFE II) SUDDENLY, A SOLDIER RAN FROM THE SAFETY OF HIS SIDE WITH DETERMINED, SELFLESS COURAGE HE RACED TOWARD THAT CHILD HE SCOOPED THE BABY FROM THE GROUND, HELD HIM TIGHTLY TO HIS SIDE AND, RAN AS FAST AS HE COULD RUN WAY BACK BEHIND THE LINES CHO 2) THERE WAS SILENCE ON THE BATTLEFIELD FOR THE SOLDIERS ALL WERE STUNNED. THEN ANOTHER MIRACLE OCCURRED—THE SOLDIERS DROPPED THEIR GUNS. THEY STOOD ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FIELD AND ECHOED OUT A CHEER AND, UP AND DOWN THOSE BATTLE LINES THEY WIPED AWAY THEIR TEARS III) BUT, ALL TOO SOON THAT PEACE HAD PASSED, AND THE SOLDIERS DROPPED BACK DOWN PICKED UP THEIR GUNS AND RESUMED THEIR FIGHT—FOR THIS WAS A BATTLEGROUD. AS THE ROAR OF GUNS, THE CRIES OF MEN, THE HATRED AND THE BLOOD TOOK THE PLACE OF A LITTLE CHILD WHO HAD UNIFIED THEM ONCE CHO 3) IF DIFFERENCES COULD FIND A WAY TO SERVE THE COMMON GOOD IF THERE COULD ONLY BE A WAY TO LOVE JUST THE WAY WE SHOULD A CHILD CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN ONCE WHOSE MESSAGE IN THE NIGHT WAS PEACE, GOOD WILL, AND LOVE TO ALL—ON THIS BATTLEFIELD OF LIFE (PA 1-287-495) © 2005 FOLKSTONE MUSIC PUBLISHING COMPANY – BMI c/o Lynn Beckman Music Productions, P.
