Citizens Soldiers Monument at Cadott, Wis.
Stairway to Heaven
They were on their way to Heaven as they hurried up the stairs,
Not only were they heroes, they were angels unaware.
Just going about their duties as they had many times before
Little did they realize they were soldiers in a war.
As the victims fled the buildings on that tragic fateful day
These brave men hurried past them with no thought to harm’s way
We can hear the bagpipes clearly as they play Amazing Grace
In salute to fallen comrades who are in a better place
We can see their fearless faces as up those stairs they trod
Right into the gates of Heaven and before the throne of God
