A Mother's Plea


When day grows old
And night draws nigh
At my child's side
Just let me be
A cry, a rant
A mother's plea

With hurt, despair
No hope, just fear
Let my child's heart
Echo with mine
A cry, a rant
A mother's plea

When my time stops
Heavens close up
My child warmth
Just let me feel
A cry, a rant
A mother's plea

Again we see
My child and me
Our pain is healed
Our joy is sealed
A dream, a wish
A mother's will

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
