  • Reagan Funeral Question?

    All politics aside…

    Does anyone know what the name of the last hymn that was played/sung while the casket was marched out of the cathedral?

    And no, I’m not talking about “Hail to the Chief”.

    The hymn was actually from We Were Soldiers. I have the CD here and the name of it is "The Mansions of the Lord (Suite)". I assume the hymn itself is called The Mansions of the Lord. But the drum beats and everything I think were put in by the movie. BTW, it was performed by the U.S. Military Academy Glee Club and Metro Voices.

          ***THE MANSIONS OF THE LORD***
          from the movie "We Were Soldiers"

          To fallen soldiers let us sing
          Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing
          Our broken brothers let us bring
          To the Mansions of the Lord

          No more bleeding, no more fight
          No prayers pleading through the night
          Just divine embrace, eternal light
          In the Mansions of the Lord

          Where no mothers cry and no children weep
          We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
          Through the ages safely keep
          The Mansions of the Lord
