In 1999, religious war broke out on the Maluku Islands in Indonesia. The Voice of the Martyrs was there to respond to the needs of those affected by the violence.
In this video, survivors of the attacks gathered together to express their love of the Lord through song. Produced by a VOM contact in Indonesia, the video also contains footage and photographs from the country.
The song, entitled "Giama", is performed by the band Yangere Petra WKO. The lyrics, roughly translated, are below.
“Oh Lord, hold my hand. Don't let us fall into temptation of the world.
Don't abandon us.
To whom we put on our hope if it is not on you.
Lord forgive our sins that we commit that our heart become calm.
Don't abandon us.”
