Who is this king—who is this saint?
The one who has removed the thorn from Life’s side?
From the land of Vietnam, today a wind has come to ask
Who dried the tears from the eyes of my History?
There was but a bit of night left, when something of a dream came to the land
In the fields of the sky, someone sowed the sun
On the stems of autumn, today the flowers have taken their rose steps
What words are these, that humanity’s Love has written?

This 1976 recording, produced by folk singer and political activist Barbara Dane, was issued a year after the fall of South Vietnam. The recording presents Ho Chi Minh through his writings and in songs praising his revolutionary zeal. Many of the speeches are presented in English by Vu Thien Dinh with two brief speeches by Ho in English. Two songs on the recording were written by Cubans and sung in Spanish. Read more.
