Moses on Karbala

10 Muharram 1429 / 11 October 2016 / Yom Kippur 5777

“End of the Trail” by Frank Parrish
Let my people go
Let me lead them home
I will split the sea
We will wander free
Freed from desire for your throne
A throne upon which
Red blood flows quick
And the tears of mothers crying
For dear Husayns betrayed
And brave Zaynabs slayed
And all the innocents dying
Dying for the right to hope
The right to love
The right to believe
In blessed days free from your grip
Basking in divine reprieve
