God Help Us
9.19.01

An angel descended upon the city through the clouds;
his heart stopped by the eerie silence,
he dropped onto his knees.

An angel wept today in the streets of New York;
his tears laid to rest the twin brothers;
they cried back, "justice."

An angel walked into Liberty Park;
he lifted the souls of the lost,
bringing them forth from the ruins of man.

An angel broke through the wreckage;
trying to save the young,
wiping their blood with his wings.

An angel wept tonight in Manhattan,
broken by hate, united in faith;
he watched America be redeemed.
