There's a special place you hold
In the heart of God above
Like the Angels in God's home
You're a portrait of his love

You are Angels without wings
To the victims of Heartland
With each rescue you have brought
Heaven's touch upon your hand

With great speed you did respond
Never once did you distract
From the hope to save all lives
Selflessly you all did act

And as God above looked down
In his heart a special pride
Was bestowed in Heaven's home
For all time it will abide

As a memory to your roles
To the sacrifice you've made
There's a tribute in God's home
That reflects your precious aid

It's a tribute carved in gold
All the Angels know it's grand
By the title that's been placed
"To The Heroes of Heartland."

A special thank you to all the Oklahoma City rescue workers who gave so much of themselves to help the injured and dying.
