Oh Father What Fear

Based on a fictional character that tragic September 11, 2001 morning, listen to the spoken words for they speak for themselves.

IN MEMORY OF ALL THE VICTIMS OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2001


OH FATHER - OH FATHER

WHAT FEAR - WHAT FEAR

ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001

THE TERROR CAME NEAR

AS I SAT AND WATCHED HELPLESS

I SHED ALL THOSE TEARS, YOU SEE THERE

WAS SO MANY PEOPLE CRYING WITH FEAR

THE HELL OF THOSE TWO AIRPLANES FIRES

HAD MADE THE  TWIN TOWERS DISAPPEAR

ALL THOSE PEOPLE SCREAMING BROUGHT ABOUT ALL MY FEARS


THE DUST COVERED MOST OF DOWNTOWN NEW YORK CITY

WHAT LIES AHEAD WAS ONLY PANIC AND FEARS

OH FATHER-OH FATHER


I AM CALLING YOU TO SETTLE MY FEAR

I SEE A BLOOD BATH OF FRIENDS AND CO-WORKERS BODIES

AND BEGAN SCREAMING IN FEAR


YOU SEE I KNEW MY LOVE ONES

WE'RE WATCHING THE TWO TWIN TOWERS DISAPPEAR

I REACHED FOR MY CELL PHONE TO HEAR FOR THE LAST TIME

“I LOVE YOU” MY DEAR


AS MY LOVE ONE WAS CRYING AND SAYING HANG ON MY DEAR,

THERE WAS A LOUD RUMBLE AND THE FIRE DEPARTMENT WAS HERE


AFTER THE DUST HAD CLEARED AWAY

I SAW JESUS APPROACHING WITH HIS BAND OF ANGLES

TO SETTLE MY FEARS


O’LORD~ GIVE US YOUR BLESSING AND CALM DOWN MY FEARS

FOR THIS IS WHAT I KNEW WHAT I KNEW WHAT WAS TO HAPPEN FOR SO MANY YEARS

OH FATHER OH FATHER BLESS ME FOR I FEAR I HAVE SINNED ALONG WITH HUMANITY FOR SO MANY YEARS

AS I LAY HERE BLEEDING UNDERNEATH THIS CRUMPLING BUILDING

PRAYING IN FEAR

I THOUGHT ABOUT ALL THOSE YEARS OF INSANITY, HATE, AND TERROR

THAT HAS HAUNTED ME IN THE NEWS FOR SO MANY YEARS

Please LORD OPEN THE GATES OF HEAVEN

FOR AS IN DEATH I SHALL WALK YOUR PATH SO DEAR


OH FATHER ~ OH FATHER

PLEASE SEND AN ANGEL TO MY FAMILY AND REMIND THEM I LOVE THEM ALL SO DEAR


I FINALLY MEET MY DESTINATION IN JESUS LOVING ARMS

THAT’S THE PATH WHICH NOW APPEARS, BLESSED IS YOUR

KINGDOM IN HEAVEN FOR I FINALLY SEE A RAY OF LIGHT; ALONGSIDE

A BED OF ROSES, WHICH TELLS ME DEATH IS FINALLY HERE

I FEEL WARMTH AND COMFORT NOW, I AM NO LONGER IN FEAR,

FAREWELL, TO ALL MY LOVE ONES

GOD BLESS YOU FOR ALL THE COMING YEARS
