The song “Peace Is Guaranteed by Force of Our Arms” was created in Juche 82 (1993) with poem by Jong Un Ok and music by People’s Artist Ri Jong O.
It represents the firm revolutionary will of the Korean people to fight for the sovereignty of the country in the first half of the 1990s when a grim situation was created in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The lyrics powerfully sing with militant poetic words that once the imperialist aggressors pounce upon them, the Korean people single-mindedly united around their leader will annihilate them with the bayonets of justice in their hands.
They also emphasize with plain and concise poetic words the historic truth that compromise with the imperialists precisely leads to national ruin and genuine peace can be defended only by the arms of revolution.
The song is appealing yet solemn thanks to its weighty and powerful rhythm, melody in comparatively low compass and contrast of tonality in the first and second parts.
The song “Peace Is Guaranteed by Force of Our Arms” is a song of the invariable faith of the Korean people regarding the sovereignty of the country and the dignity of the nation as their life and soul.
