Justice Will Prevail >> Leaving For Tiananmen

Leaving for Tiananmen

Written by a Chinese Falun Dafa Practitioner
Vocals: Sara Effner
Guitar: Randall Effner

A daughter explains to her beloved mother why she must risk her life to appeal for Falun Dafa. With no other channels to seek justice, thousands of practitioners have traveled to Tiananmen Square only to say, "Falun Dafa is good. Please stop persecuting us." Whether calling out these words, holding a banner, or silently practicing the exercises on Tiananmen Square, the result is often imprisonment, beatings, torture, and sometimes death, simply for upholding one's belief.


Mama tomorrow I'm leaving home
For Dafa's name, I feel that I must go
It pains my heart to see your black hair turn gray
I know you worry that theyíll take me away

[Sung in Chinese]

Mama, please don't you worry for me
Truth has been safeguarded since antiquity
Dafa has taught me to seek Zhen-Shan-Ren [Truth-Compassion-Forbearance]
Now I'm prepared to face the storms ahead

Mama, please listen to these words of mine
Fame, wealth, and gain I have left behind
All I desire is a heart pure and bright
Why fear the cold winds on a stormy night?

Mama, you raised me to speak the truth
And think of others in all that I do
When you see the plum blossoms announcing spring
Mama, I hope you will be proud of me
Mama, I hope you will be proud of me
