High upon the towers
They saw the gleaming sky
All were unaware
That this day they would die

High upon the towers
They felt the warming sun
Not knowing in brief moments
Their time on earth was done

High upon the towers
They spied the rolling sea
Some enjoyed their coffee
While others sipped their tea

High upon the towers
Just as the day began
The fire of hell came roaring
Ending every plan

Low from a blackened sky
The towers fell to dust
Shattered, twisted, ruined
A heap of ash and rust

High upon the towers
God looked down and cried
At the evil of man’s hatred
As His children died

High upon the towers
All of them are free
Part of God’s great Kingdom
For all eternity
