Vor

Words and music Copyright ©2001 by Bill Sutton
Lyrics posted with permission of the author

Our world is the land and the land is our mother,
Through lost generations we've stood by her side.
We are the sons of the men who protected her,
We are the daughters of women who've died.

CHORUS:
Vor is the name we won from our fathers,
Vor is the love that our mothers provide,
Vor is the honor we share with our brothers,
Vor is the duty that keeps us alive.

We are the Names, and our Names are the promises
Made to our ancestors when we were born.
Three for the judges and Two for the people
One when the Fates turn and make a new Lord.

CHORUS

Once we stood firm against disintegration
Of our culture, our honor, our children, our core.
Now that we stand in the light of the Universe
How do we teach them the meaning of Vor?

CHORUS

Together alone against people and planet,
Each generation encompassing more.
Kosigan, Soisson, Tashpula, and Barra
Where would we be now if not for the Vor?

CHORUS:
Vor is the name we won from our fathers,
Vor is the love that our mothers provide,
Vor is the honor we share with our brothers,
Vor is the duty that keeps us alive.
