Mother, You Are There


Mother, You Are There

Music for Children, Music for Women, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

Children:  When I left my home in heaven, and I came to earth to live,

Mother, you were waiting for me, arms wide open, love to give.

There are lessons you can teach me, and some happy times to share.

When I need a star to guide me Mother, Mother you are there.

 

Mother:  When you left your home in heaven, you had things to teach me too,

Patience, caring, lessons in love trust and joy I learned from you.

I will live a little better.  I will walk with greater care.

Knowing that your trusting footsteps follow, knowing you are there.

 

Children:  When I take a step and stumble, dearest Mother you are there.

I can see the hurt in your eyes, and I know how much you care.

When it’s dark and I am frightened, teach me how to say a prayer.

When I need a star to guide me Mother, Mother you are there.

 

Mother & Children:  I can always find a star to guide me, knowing you are there.
