The day the world stood still, they said a prayer, and said good-bye
Trusting that God's loving eyes would be their only guide
Like birds without wings they flew, from death to life anew

SANCTIFIED, holy ground
In these ashes, angels now
Washed by a million tears
Blessed by our broken hearts
Healed by arms open wide

Each day, the earth still turns, the rising sun still greets the land
Mercy in a passing smile, a stranger's helping hand
Hope in the morning light, as we are all made new


I still cry out with questions unspoken
But deep in my soul, I know that God holds them
