God, not much is left for us to see
Terrorists came to destroy humanity;
Was so much suffering and also harm
As we cried out to You with great alarm.
Twelve years doesn't seem so long ago;
What happened had been a horrible blow;
Twin Towers with planes just did collide;
In heaven with You, newcomers abide.
Firefighters tried to save lives but died
And innocent bystanders helplessly cried;
Might be someone they may have known?
Small child without parents there all alone.
Although both buildings finally would fall
To God, we must pray and stand so tall;
A bright sun rose and then soon set
On Nine Eleven, a day we will never forget.
