The Promised Land
Trouble with the audio sample?
Sadness was the price to see it end. It's been two years since they told me that.
—Marlene, in the prologue of Advent Children

"The Promised Land", composed by Nobuo Uematsu, is the opening theme of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. It is notably played while Marlene Wallace is narrating the events of Final Fantasy VII. It is played again near the end of the film when Aerith Gainsborough calls down healing rain from the Lifestream.

LyricsEdit

LatinEdit

Cur in gremio haeremus
Cur poenam cardi parvo damus
Stella nobis non concessit
Non concessit
Stella nobis non concessit
Non concessit
Venarum pulsus in terram fluens
Parvus, parvus pulsus
Cor mortem ducens
Vita mollis in stellam redeunt
Animam sacrificare necesse est
Cur in gremio haeremus
Cur veniam petimus
In terram fatali

English TranslationEdit

Why do we cling together
Why do we give punishment to lesser hearts
The Stars did not forgive us
Did not forgive us
The Stars did not forgive us
Did not forgive us
The throbbing pulse flows through the earth
A tiny pulse
A heart drawn to death
A gentle life returns to the Stars
Must souls be sacrificed
Why do we cling together
Why do we beg for forgiveness
In the Promised Land
