Music Video: “We Have Tomorrow” By Sherten

2014 07 09 Sherten We Have Tomorrow

High Peaks Pure Earth has translated a new music video called “We Have Tomorrow” by popular Tibetan singer Sherten.

“We Have Tomorrow” came out earlier this year and has been viewed tens of thousands of times already on video hosting sites such as Youku and YouTube. Sherten from Golok, Amdo, is a familiar singer by now to readers of High Peaks Pure Earth, see another video by him with an environmental message titled “The Call” and also the contemporary classic song, “The Sound of Unity”.

This is a relatively simple pop song but has powerful lyrics, similar to a song translated back in February titled “I Have Everything” by Sangtse with lyrics by Khoten. It is an encouraging song to inspire Tibetan youth to be hopeful and places importance on Tibetan language, education and Tibetan unity.

These is the 51st Tibetan music video translated by High Peaks Pure Earth since the Wednesday music video series started towards the end of 2012. Please go back and watch our other videos using this link: http://highpeakspureearth.com/category/music-from-tibet/

Below are the subtitled music video and translated lyrics of “We Have Tomorrow”:

We have leaders educated in holistic views
We have brothers and sisters inspired with courage
The hopeful youth
You are the life of the Snowland
If the flow of mother tongue is not hampered
We have tomorrow

We have a homeland established with bravery
We have a culture constructed with discernment
The hopeful youth
You are the life of the Snowland
If the wisdom eye is not dimmed
We have tomorrow

We have the snow mind of glittering light
We have the endurance of pure rivers
The hopeful youth
You are the life of the Snowland
If the ring of unity is not slackened
We have tomorrow

The hopeful youth
You are the life of the Snowland
If the ring of unity is not slackened
We have tomorrow

The hopeful youth
You are the life of Snowland
If the ring of unity is not slackened
We have tomorrow
