The Honor of Your Name lyrics

The Honor of Your Name

Sarah McEwan
Today a man came to our door
Dressed in black, with news of war
A face I've never seen before
And Bill, I never will forget him
I knew at once that you were gone
He tipped his hat, and then moved on
And left my world a cold and empty space
Such a lonely place
But for the promise
That we made so long ago
For the nights
When you held me in your arms
I will keep life's fragile flame
For the honor of your name

I don't know what to do right now
Except to struggle on somehow
I've learned to sow, I'll learn to plow
And Bill, I never will forget you
The kids and I might move out west
I'll take our dream and leave the rest
There's nothin' for my broken heart to do
'Cept write these words to you
For the promise
That we made so long ago
For the love
All the love that will not die
I will keep life's fragile flame
For the honor of your name

And maybe someday when I'm stronger
I will look back on this day
And understand all the reasons why
The good Lord took you away
But for the promise
That we made so long ago
For the man
That I see in our son's eyes
I will keep life's fragile flame
For the honor of your name
