On the September Morn.
There was a grandeur this September morn,
On this 11th day,
As the sun raised to the East,
There was a deep brilliance,
Silent in its majesty,
At this place.

A place where America won its freedom,
A place where Americans always stand strong,
A place where this brilliant morn brought,
The warm light of freedom,
By dawn's early light.
On this September morn.
