Countless Voices Lyrics

Countless voices cry in mourning weeping with grief and pain
Had I a sword I would defend the veil, oh Zainab

1
On Ashura the family of Husayn caused the earth to shake x2
It heard the swords clash across the field, cries of Al-Atash
Had I a sword I would defend the veil, oh Zainab

Countless voices…

2
Battle over, all the men had gone, no one there to defend x2
The veils were snatched, jewellery pulled from ears, Sakina’s cry so pure
Had I a sword I would defend the veil, oh Zainab

Countless voices…

3
Paraded through the streets and markets to Kufa and Shaam x2
Oh people did you not know them, they are of Rasool
Had I a sword I would defend the veil, oh Zainab

Countless voices…

4
The court in Shaam, the palace of Yazid, tied in chains in pain x2
Zainab stood defending Islam for us all, so brave
Had I a sword I would defend the veil, oh Zainab

Countless voices…

5
The tragedy of the martyrs will live in our hearts x2
The lessons from those in Karbala, examples for us all
Had I a sword I would defend the veil, oh Zainab

Countless voices…

6
So now we stand grieving and mourning to show you Zainab x2
The sacrifice of Imam Husayn, we will never forget
Had I a sword I would defend the veil, oh Zainab

Countless voices…
