Tibet Needs You

Tibet Needs You

Before your people are totally wiped out,

Before the land is completely destroyed.

Before your culture is irreversibly lost,

Your country needs you-now.


To regain Freedom from Chinese oppression,

To give every Tibetan a sense of dignity,

To restore Tibet to its former glory,

Your country needs you-now.


Not when you feel like-that may never come,

Not Yesterday-for that is already gone,

Not Tomorrow-that may well be too late,

Tibet Needs You-NOW!
