James Otto - Soldiers & Jesus


Song Title : Soldiers & Jesus | Artist/Band : James Otto

Play the Music Video
Grand-daddy came home in a B-52
In a pine box covered in red, white and blue
He was one of the brave and the proud and the few

Twenty-one guns helped us say goodbye
I stood there in silence tryin' hard not to cry
As the preacher, he quoted, lines written in red
And then he folded his bible and in a broken voice, he said

There's only two people who's every died for me
Laid down their lives just so I could be free
They both went through hell, beared crosses and shells
And both got back up again after they fell

They never picked the fight, but they're there
To pick up the pieces

God only knows who we'd be without soldiers and Jesus

It seems like the news loves to run 'em both down
But whenever we need 'em, they're always around
So don't hand me a party's political views
'Cause they're a left side, a right side, and then there's the truth

There's only two people who's every died for me
Laid down their lives just so I could be free
They both went through hell, beared crosses and shells
And both got back up again after they fell

They never picked the fight, but they're there
To pick up the pieces
God only knows who we'd be without soldiers and Jesus

To me, they're both heroes for the path that they chose
'Cause one fights for my life, one fights for my soul

There's only two people who's every died for me
Laid down their lives just so I could be free
They both went through hell, beared crosses and shells
And both got back up again after they fell

They never picked the fight, but they're there
To pick up the pieces

God only knows where we'd be without soldiers and Jesus
Soldiers and Jesus

This song is beautiful. I love it! It reminds me of my Grandfather. I personally do not have a family member in service, But I am so thankful for the ones that have been, and for the brave that serve today. I cannot think of another song that defines ones love for Soldiers and Jesus... God Bless America. For it is only here that we have the freedom to create, and listen to beautiful melodies like this! :)

I find it troublesome that all of you do not take issue with this song. When I first heard it, I thought it was catchy till I started thinking about the refrain, "God only knows who we'd be without soldiers and Jesus" I guess my assumption is that all of you are religious and follow Jesus Christ's teachings. Does it not strike you that soldiers champion a cause directly in opposition to Jesus? Now don't get me wrong, I understand soldiers and what they do for this country, mainly because I am a soldier, but that still does not stop me from taking pause when I hear those words... Jesus would never want any of this... I am ashamed that Jesus is associated with killing and war these days, that Jesus backs this country and this country alone is blasphemy... Jesus loves everybody and accepts them even with their faults, you better not believe that Jesus supports war, and supports our soldiers alone. Yes, I fully believe soldiers are necessary cause there are people, groups, armies out there that would take advantage of an unprotected people, and yes, I believe in God, I believe in Jesus... I just think it is blasphemous to combine the two thoughts into one. Jesus doesn't support the extinguishing of life in any manner or for any reason, but until we can achieve world peace Yes, we, I, soldiers, value and fight for our freedom, but to glorify it in such a way greatly troubles me. As long as soldiers are necessary, we, collectively as a world, are failing Jesus. Please, I do not mean to upset anyone, but I hope you can just consider what I am saying.

Thank you for your comments, Jason. I too am troubled by the lyrics. I deeply appreciate what our soldiers do and agree with your assessment of their necessity; since we fail to follow God's will in all things we do not experience God's peace in the world. The other thing that troubles me about the lyrics is the implication that Jesus isn't enough - we need soldiers too. The song seems to make them equal partners. I don't find that in the Bible.

My nephew died on 12/31/10 in Afgansitan. Until you have one of your own die for you, you will never understand the song and were the song writer is coming from. So those of you who are questioning the truth in the song. I only hope that you will never truely know the painful truth of this son. My nephew's wife is also a soldier and was in Afgansitan when her husdand was killed. As for those who don't find it in the Bible. It's not. But it doesn't mean that you are free today with out our soldiers. Just remember this.

Like it says at the end of the song Jesus is "fighting" for our souls and soldiers are fighting for our freedom. The writer maybe meant for it to be a broad spectrum that we have a spiritual and physical group fighting for us so that we don't have to deal with the 'evils' that other people have to deal with.
Also to make us remember that not everyone can take for granted what we have spiritually and physically.

ps. war is raged by God in the bible against his enemies.
ie. During one battle mentioned Moses was given the staff of the the Lord to hold up for his army to see during the battle so that they would have faith and defeat his enemies. When Mose's arms began to tire and the 'troops' would lose faith and start to falter and lose the battle, his brother Aaron supported his arms so that the staff of the Lord would be seen by those who loved and fought for Him. When Aaron helped hold the staff for the troops to see they surged foreward and won the battle God had set in motion. God knows we are a violent people..He's given us Jesus and Soldiers, equals as men (as Jesus was during his 33 years as a man, not as equals of the holy trinity as his was, is, and always be), to save and deliver us from so many things....
