Journal for a Soldier

Brian Balmages
Grade: 3.5–4



The lyrical lines of this heart-wrenching composition were inspired by a letter from an 8-year-old girl to a soldier overseas. Using elements of Brahm's Lullaby, Eternal Father Strong to Save, and Echo Taps, it tells the story of a father with incredible courage, yet he also longs to be able to tuck his daughter in at night. You will not have a dry eye in the house, including your own. (5:45)
