To the families and friends of the victims of 9/11

September 11, the innocent were on the flights
And with no comprehension, knew not their plights,
The ideologically demented – they were on board
Fanatically disillusioned, was their concept of God

In their anguish and anger they commandeered the planes
With impunity for themselves, but for life, nothing but disdain,
So with instructions from “Sheol” they crashed into the Towers
Shockingly unimaginable destruction came in less than an hour

With so many lives that seemed headed for the grave
New York’s rescuers, exemplified the true meaning of – ” brave”,
Rushing into the buildings not knowing what to expect
Down came the mighty Towers and the smell of death

O! Father of light and Giver of unmerited grace
In this our darkest moments, show us Thine face,
Bless our aching hearts with a preamble of Your plan
For we trust in Your goodness, when you raise Your “right” hand

This tragedy is so immense, we just cannot comprehend
But this evil, we are sure, You will bring to an “end”…
