“The Season of Suffering” sung by Ayie, dedicated to the frontline workers against Covid-19 in Malaysia.

The Season of Suffering

We heard the news
All at once, all around the world
The season of suffering begins

In towns and villages
all is quiet and peaceful
Birds’ voices are heard
singing non-stop
The one imprisoned
is the dweller
who awakens to
the meaning of suffering

To the front line
march the warriors
Their spirit of service
like glowing embers
Where there is crying
there will be pity
God’s compassion
is overflowing

The victim drowns
in terrifying dreams
The miniscule enemy
shouldn’t be underestimated
It seeks out
the sufferer
without discriminating
between rich and poor
not bothering about
ethnicity and religion

We are being invaded
in peace time
The victims of war
are not so many
The misdeeds of mankind
all over the earth
are the source of our suffering


The warriors shoulder
this burden
Our debt to them
cannot be repaid
Angels suddenly appear
by our side
in this season of suffering

To the battlefield
march the warriors
Their spirit of service
ever flourishing
Extending help to all
without discriminating
between poor and rich
ethnicity and religion
God’s wisdom is accepted

In the season of suffering
