We Remember 9-11-2001

Remembering September 11, 2011We remember today, a tragedy of a year ago, our world torn apart,
Loved ones, firemen, policemen, hospital workers gave of their heart,
Planes were in route were overtaken and abused sorely by evil men,
Flew into the towers, the pentagon and killed the bravest people, who have ever been.

They took back the plane in PA, and gave their life that others might live,
I know it was no shock to Jesus, I know He heard Prayers and did forgive,
The evil there and the towers was so awful, we had to send our men, a war to fight
To take the evil peoples land to ruin, kill many there, who hath not seen the light.

The workers are so great to have done it all, even to the blood they gave,
That some who were wounded would have the chance, their life to save,
Valor and gentry was in our Country that day, our Eagle soared on high,
Representing our great country on land, in the city, and on sea, he stood by.

They tried to soil our Flag that day, but it was not ever to be, they stand by,
Maybe a rip or even some burned, and to ashes turned, but they are still waving high,
They wave in our hearts, as do the heroes who gave their all that terrible day,
We need always to remember the friends we lost, in such a sinful way.

Jesus took our loved ones on home, it was their time, or it would not have been,
For He is in control always, even of the cowards hiding in a caves den,
A braggart who is evil, up in glory he will never be, he is not Gods' own,
Lord, bring our soldiers, sailors, marines and air force men back home.

The workers digging up bodies for months, trying to identify peoples loving kin,
Even the smartest and bravest canine were there, doing their share again,
We look back now and see anew, all our world seemed to just tear apart,
But let us keep utmost in our minds that now and forever, that Jesus is in our heart.

He will watch over all who call on Him; He will mend broken hearts and make anew.
He will be with us all throughout eternity, in all the things we need to do;
Just give your life to Jesus today; He will so tenderly take the greatest care
Of your life now, as did He, when our people were in taken in shock last year.
