Today marks the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I. When the USA declared war on Germany in April 1917, George M. Cohen wrote “Over There”, the battle-cry song for World War I. His verses reflected the patriotic fever that if only “The Yanks are Coming” it would be a short and successful outing. The war to end all wars turned out to be one of the bloodiest and most costly wars ever.
Send the word, send the word to all “We care!” That the Church is helping, the Church is caring
Good news for all is everywhere.
Hear the word, Hear the word that we care - Whether waiting, or we're coming,
We won't be done till your needs are won, Over here, and over there.
