Habousi Do Not Weep!


Habousi, do not weep

Hearing the past cries of Armenian

Villagers,

Victims of Turkey's Extermination,

Torturous massacres,

They have suffered.

Habousi, do not weep,

For your spirit is alive

Along with the Armenians that survived

Traditions and stories thrive

Through generations of our ancestors

They could not take our culture,

Habousi, do not weep,

Holy crosses replaced with crescents,

Crucifixion wounds inflicted our descendants,

Persecution and death from the genocide.

Habousi, do not weep.

We are strong,

Rising from such a fate,

We live,

We breathe,

We are Armenian!

Habousi, do not weep,

For Turkey does not acknowledge

It's sins of annihilating a race,

It is such a disgrace,

Habousi,

You are remembered,

Habousi, you live forever

In the hearts of Armenians!

Habousi!
