Dedicated To Freedom

Dedicated To Freedom

Dedicated To Freedom

They stood tall and proud.
These two giants of man.
Silent and concrete,
they stood hand in hand.

Not a word did they speak.
But their message was clear.
Freedom is ours.
And Freedom is here.

On America’s land.
The home of the Free.
They invited the world.
to trade in full liberty.

But then came the attacks.
Through everyday planes.
That you changed into missiles.
And that spewed out their flames.

Everyday sights.
That we see everyday.
Changed America’s big apple.
From vibrant to grey.

And the giants they fell.
Straight down out of the sky.
And the dust that rose up.
Made America cry.

And the lives that were lost.
In these two giant’s fall.
Were the passion that caused.
All the Free-World to call.

To call out for an end.
To all hatreds and pains.
And the cowardly moves.
Held in terrorist games.

No more should man hide.
Behind a fake “Holy cause”.
If only you’d reasoned.
Took a moment to pause.

Were the lives worth the killing?
Was your Mission so rare?
That the God of Creation.
Couldn’t achieve it by prayer?

He threw stars into heavens.
Caused Mountains to rise.
Do they think you have won
or brought tears to His eyes?

If only you’d reasoned.
Took a moment to pause.
Seen the truth of the Gospel.
Not your fake holy cause.

You would see that the Father.
Was there all along.
In every prayer prayed,
Every tear, every song.

So to each and every coward.
You who are terrorism’s pawn
Here is a news flash.
And you through it I warn.

You have toppled these giants.
Struck out at the just.
But your own end you have sealed.
Through that fire and dust.

For the free thinking world.
Will always be there.
And will only ever bow down.
In worship and prayer.

To a Father whose Heart.
Wept for all those who died.
Every Mother and Father.
Every Friend, Every Child.

And He’s crying right now.
For the Sin you have done.
Cause He paid for your hatred.
Through the gift of His son.

I’d gladly lay down my life.
Just to help you to see.
You can’t win of Justice.
The Brave and Free.

Your fight’s already over.
All your efforts just loss.
For the Battle was won.
Long ago on the cross.

The Cross of our Saviour.
That stood on Calvary.
That bought the home of the brave.
And blessed the Land of the Free!
