The Thirty Three
Buried deep inside the fiery bowels of earth
Hope held fast
Rocks rained as darkness and dust surrounded,
Still, faith stood strong
Hearts worldwide worked together to rescue fellow man
God given gifts given to save lives
One by one, 33 souls traveled the narrow path
Moment by moment reaching for the earth’s surface
Anticipation filled hearts and eyes
Refreshed as lungs finally breathed in fresh, cool Chilean air
Their arrival an unforgettable celebration!
Cheers and Praise rose to heaven
Reuniting with loved ones
As tears and joy flowed, ours and theirs
Our world watched the unfolding, united
As one world, one people, rejoiced!
