 Hearts' of my soul emotions

9/11 Anniversary  Tribute 2002

And God Sees Their Sin.


    The Psalms 94

21.  They gather themselves together

  against the soul of the righteous,

   and condemn the innocent blood.

22.  But the LORD is my defense; and

    my God is the rock of my refuge.

Anniversary Tribute

by N. Berry        9/10/02


9-11 revisited. It hardly seems that long.

Three years ago memorialized in poetry and song.

Dear Lord, give us wisdom, somehow to help us cope.

Give us insight and understanding, Lord help us have hope.

For those who lost loved ones, give faith and comfort too.

Help them to understand, the enemy was not You.

Let them overcome fear and despair and learn once more to live.

Give them peace that passes understanding

and help them to forgive.

Oh God, let our hearts be mended, our minds and souls be healed.

Give us strength as on wings like eagles, and the precious memories sealed

in the corridors of our minds, there our faith and love revealed.

We don't ever want to forget those who needlessly died.

We will always remember how willingly they gave their lives.

We'll never know completely how great their sacrifice,

some could have run to safety, but that would not suffice.

They courageously faced the danger, to save another's life,

 they went where they were needed, regardless of the price.

Dear God, never let us forget, the price they paid that day.

Just as Jesus gave His life for us, the ultimate price to pay.

They're in your loving care Lord, safe in your sheltering arms.

Please, Dear Lord, protect our land and keep us safe from harm.
