Posted text:  “From my wounds my weapon has emerged”

The sentence is a quote from a song, its full lyrics are the following:

"From my wounds, my weapon has emerged.
O, our revolution, my weapon has emerged
There is no force in the world that can remove the weapon from my hand
My weapon has emerged. My weapon has emerged
He who offers his blood does not care if his blood flows upon the ground
As the weapon of the revolution is in my hand, so my presence will be forced [upon Israel]
My weapon has emerged. My weapon has emerged."
