They were silent tears, that fell that day.
They fell for those who passed away.
Through gritted teeth, that had to say,
We've lost our best. For them, we pray.

Those silent tears, that fall like rain
From reddened eyes, our cheeks they stain.
They signify our countries pain.
And yet, we will arise again.

Though countless tears, we all have cried;
Are always wet and never dried.
The innocent are on God's side.
We are resolved in nations pride.
