Burning in Our Hearts


On September 11, 2001, thousands died after terrorists crashed two commercial airplanes into New York's World Trade Center. As the Twin Towers fell, many brave firefighters, police officers and rescue workers sacrificed their own lives to save others.

Burning in Our Hearts
A Tribute to the Fallen Firefighters
of September 11, 2001

We sing for you a hero's tune,
For you have left us much too soon.
You boldly gave your life away
The day the city turned to gray.

The sirens blared; the call came out;
You answered it without a doubt.
A tragedy had struck us all.
The towers fell, but you stood tall.

You vaulted over flights of stairs
To answer many strangers' prayers;
They live today because you went,
Allowing your life to be spent.

Your country and the world admire
How you leapt up to fight the fire.
Yet a much grander blaze did start
Within each American heart.

As years go by, we don't forget,
And we owe you a giant debt.
Your courage, valor, strength and might
Will ever live in endless light.
