WE WILL NOT GO DOWN - Michael Hearts

-->
WE WILL NOT GO DOWN [Song for GAZA]
By Michael Hearts



-->
A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
Nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down in Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who’s wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down in Gaza tonight

Sami Yusuf - "Forever Palestine"

-->
FOREVER PALESTINE
By Sami Yusuf


Mother don’t cry for me
I am doing what I must
God almighty is my witness that I trust
Palestine, Forever Palestine

Children being killed for throwing stones in the sky
They say to their parents “don’t worry, God is on our side”
Palestine, Forever Palestine

Mother don’t worry when they come for us at night
Surely they’ll be sorry when God puts them right
Tell me why they’re doing what was done to them
Don’t they know that God is with the oppressed and needy
Perished were the nations that ruled through tyranny
Palestine, Forever Palestine

Children of Palestine are fighting for their lives
They say to their parents, “we know that Palestine is our right”
They say to their parents, “we’ll fight for what is right”
They say, “not to worry! God is on our side”
They say, “we’ll die for Palestine”
Palestine, Forever Palestine
