A Prayer

September 11, 2001 - For all victims of the terrorism tragedy in the United States of America.

          God bless the men who died this day,
          God bless the women , too,
          And all the little children, Lord,
          Who now reside with you.

          And bless the friends and families
          That they have left behind;
          Enfold each one within Your arms
          That they Your peace may find.

          Evil may have struck a blow
          And brought us to our knees,
          But love will raise us up again
          And give our heart's some ease.

          And Lord, be with the people who
          Must, in the days ahead,
          Face horrors unimaginable
          As they dig out the dead.

          Each and every one of us
          Has been changed this day some way;
          So Lord, be with America
          And heal our hearts we pray.
