Heart of the Storm Words and Music by Bill Pere
 
The ship sails away in the sunset,
Like a mirage in the sand
Children stare at the horizon
Your loved ones take heart from the strength
In that last lingering squeeze of your hand
 
You're the thunder and lightning, you're the heart of the storm
Standing tall with pride and conviction
We'll keep you in our hearts, we'll keep the home fires warm
And pray to God above, keep you safe through the night,
As you fight to build a world that's filled with love...

Each day, we think of your faces
You know how much we wish you were home
Let our love be an oasis
Till the pathways of peace bring you back
We're with you, you're never alone

You're the thunder and lightning, you're the heart of the storm
Standing tall with pride and conviction
We'll keep you in our hearts, we'll keep the home fires warm
And pray to God above, keep you safe through the night,
As you fight to build a world that's filled with love...

We've read all your letters
We've been touched by the thoughts they reveal
The pride, the fears, the courage, the tears
The desert dunes, ever changing
Can't change the way that we feel

You're the thunder and lightning, you're the heart of the storm
Standing tall with pride and conviction
We'll keep you in our hearts, we'll keep the home fires warm
And pray to God above, keep you safe through the night,
As you fight to build a world that's filled with love...
