There She Stands

On this the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on American soil, I thought I would post this tribute.

The song is called “There She Stands” written by Michael W. Smith in 2002 at the special request of President George W. Bush.  The lyrics are as follows:

 

When the night seems to say
All hope is lost, gone away
But I know I’m not alone
By the light she stands

There she waves, faithful friend
Shimmering stars, westward wind
Show the way, Carry me
To the place she stands

Just when you think it might be over
Just when you think the fight is gone
Someone will risk his life to raise her
There she stands

There she flies, clear blue skies
Reminds us with red of those that died
Washed in white by the brave
In their strength, she stands

When evil calls itself a martyr
When all your hopes come crashing down
Someone will pull her from the rubble
There she stands

We’ve seen her flying torn and tattered
We’ve seen her stand the test of time
And through it all the fools have fallen
There she stands

By the dawn’s, early light
And through the fight. She stands
