A Prayer for the Martyrs by Raymond A. Foss
The jubilation still rising
the awakening of a nation
history changing
while the world is watching

Yet there are more
many who are not here
the martyrs of the square
who paid with their lives

The hope of this people
the world in their example
a prayer for the martyrs
and those who went to jail

An echo of our own past
when for civil rights they marched
the people charting a new course
the tyrants cast off

No nation is immune
if the people rise as one
heeding the stirring of their hearts
until the battle is done

Trusting in freedom’s call
the voice within
leading to fight for justice
until the people win
