Victory of Sorrow - Courage Ahiati

Lilies blow to the left
announcing to the world
of the coming rift
of the people destiny has called

we are warriors of this world
we carried the horns of glory
we drank from the cups of adversity
we paddled canoes across stormy seas without worry

let the world hear our chants
let the citizens come and meet us at the gates
we come home tonight with victory
with victory that has stolen our joy
victory that we cannot celebrate
welcome us, world, take off our load
and clean our tears
for we have come home
