The words of United Through It All
( Lyrics by Randy Bayne - a Christian musician )


Randy Bayne

On Sunday, Sept. 9, 2001, Randy Bayne, co-founder of CMP , (615) 297-6634, Nashville, TN, was on top of the north tower of the World Trade Center enjoying the spectacular view of New York City. Two days later, back in his hometown of Myrtle Beach, S.C, he watched the terrorist attack on the landmark buildings, along with the rest of the world, unfold live on television. That night, as Randy was driving to an annual Gospel Quartet Convention in Louisville, Ky., he was inspired to pull off to the side of the road and write some poetic expressions of the awe, disbelief, and grief he was feeling over the horrific events of that morning. This song has been performed by numerous nationally prominent artists and choral groups with orchestra or band on televised broadcasts honoring Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and the September 11 anniversary.

Now the words :

On an Island in the harbor, Lady Liberty's darkest day
Terror rose against our land, Evil had its way
We witnessed two strong towers, As they came crashing down
Innocent lives were sacrificed, In rubble on the ground
We stood in awe, in disbelief, As souls of thousands fell
In the horror of this picture, In the midst of all this hell
We bound our spirits and resolve, To answer freedom's call
This is America! We'll rise above it all!

( Chorus )


We're united in our victory, United in our cause;
We'll stand against all enemies, Liberty has no walls.
We are stronger than those towers, This country will not fall;
We are Americans! United through it all.

We'll bind our wounded, Grieve for those who died
We'll praise the heroes efforts, And sing out with pride
America, America God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood

( Chorus )

For We're united in our victory, United in our cause;
We'll stand against all enemies, Liberty has no walls.
We are stronger than those towers, This country will not fall;
We are Americans! United through it all.
