draw the veil of night time upon the tired eyes of the day to renew its sight in a
brisker gladness of Nationwide Awakening Stage of 5th February of 2013. Grace,
then, is grace, – that is to say, it is sovereign, it is free, it’s positive, it
is unconditional, and it’s everlasting. This music isn’t a track of
theology—it’s our own heartfelt expression of gratitude to this great movement
which betided six years again in Bangladesh. Long stay the Gonojagoron Manch
Movement as a lighthouse for us all in Bangladesh.
