I sing for the mothers all over the earth
For their power, for their love
I ache for the mothers all over the earth
For their sorrow, for their love
May their broken hearts be cradled
May their righteous anger be heard
I pray for justice and healing for all of the mothers
All over the earth
I sing for the mothers of soldiers at war …
I sing for the mothers who grieve for a child …
I sing for the mothers who have no voice …
…of children with AIDS
…in countries at war
…of the the dying species
This “zipper” song allows us to voice our pain for the world, and invites us to add our own verses by substituting our own words for those shown in bold. To extend it beyond the human realm, “I sing for the mothers of the dying species” can be included. Click here for the guitar chords.
