    Here is the translation (posted on YouTube so I take no responsibility for accuracy):

    Say, what brings this brave land to tears?And what brings our kind folk to rage?We raise high our heads, and our voices swellLiberty, please come back here!Say, why has this land filled with fearAnd how has our faith kept us strong?Why have we bled and yet still marched on?For a bright and free Hong Kong!Stars fall ‘round in this dark night of fearThrough the haze blares out this bugle call:“Hold strong! We are one, marching together, joined in handCourage and Wisdom guide us all!”Dawn has come, wake Hong Kong, set Her free!Friends of Truth, we have claimed our victoryLiberty, keep forever this great land freeOur glorious Hong Kong!

    There are already dozens of different English lyrics but so far they all sound a bit weird to me.

    The widely accepted Cantonese version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7yRDOLCy4Y

    Moving this to another thread, as it seems this will be the new form of protest over the next few days.

    Last night at the football match:

    The scenes of people singing in the malls is very powerful and emotional.
