My brother in law sent this to me. I haven't heard the actual song but the words are pretty neat.


Silent Night 9-11

Here is the story of the Silent Night 9-11 Song.

The voice is Bob Holiday, radio voice talent from Glendale, California. Bob explains how the song came about:

"The words were taken from an e-mail that had been circulating around the web signed "anonymous." My General Manager had the brilliant idea of combining the specific song (Silent Night from the Mannheim Steamroller album entitled "Christmas") to those words and asked if I would do the voice production. I was a bit reluctant because of the emotional nature of the project (I'm a guy who doesn't cry right?) I had to stop several times to make it through the voice over."

"From there my GM passed it along to stations in our network. After that it seemed to take the entire nation by storm. I guess folks were ready for the message."

"As for the title I simply called it Silent Night and from there everybody changed it to what they thought if should be."

The Song is not available commercially. Scroll down to see the lyrics courtesy of Sunny 95.


Silent Night 9-11 Lyrics

You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news on September 11, 2001.

Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say , "Good-bye."

I held his fingers steady as he dialed

I gave him peace to say, "Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK...I am ready to go."

I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children.

I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out for me for help. "I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!" I said, of course I will show you the way home - only believe in me now."

I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them.

I was in Texas, Kansas, London. I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name - though not all know me. Some met me for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought me with their last breath.

Some couldn't hear me calling to them through the smoke and flames; "Come to me...this way...take my hand." Some chose, for the final time, to ignore me.

I did not place you in the tower that day. You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for me?

September 11, 2001 was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well. Seek me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are "ready to go."

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

Remember...I Love you.
