As I take you to - our city of heroes - bow your head and say a prayer
For the friends we knew ? in this place ground zero
For the towers that filled the air_______

There's a light - that fills the deepest shadow
There's a grace - that comforts all our sorrow
There's a faith - that believes and sees tomorrow
And a strength to carry on ________

There's a light - to lead us through the darkness no one knows
& we'll see you in our dreams - in the canyons of our heroes

All the faces who - were taken so sudden - all the names and lives they made
They were brother, father, mother, sister, husband, wife and children -
Whose love will never fade_______

There's a light - that fills the deepest shadow
There's a grace - that comforts all our sorrow
There's a faith - that believes and sees tomorrow
And a strength to carry on ________

There's a light - to lead us through the darkness no one knows
& we'll hold you in our dreams - in the canyons of our heroes

As I take you to ? their places kept - through jagged range that cuts the sky
I will tell you true, here devils cried & angels wept
- their faces asking why_______

There's a light - that fills the deepest shadow
There's a grace - that comforts all our sorrow
There's a hope - that will heal us to the marrow
- & the strength to carry on____

There's a light - to lead us through this darkness no one knows
& there's a peace to calm us when the harshest winds may blow
We may bend & lashed, may bleed ? but we'll go on_______

And from the garden of our tears - fill the canyons of our heroes
I will love you all my years - & see you in the canyons of our heroes.
