Mother Mary

Mother Mary, Mother take me, Mother Mary show me how
Leave my pain and separation, Mother take me with you now

You know trouble, you know sorrow, you have seen this all before
You have heard so many prayers, I ask you now to hear one more

Mother Mary, Mother take me, Mother Mary show me how
Leave my pain and separation, Mother take me with you now

Something slowly grows inside me, something makes a pleading sound
Every day a little louder, tell me will it take me down

Mother Mary, Mother take me, Mother Mary show me how
Leave my pain and separation, Mother take me with you now

In the morning we’ll be leaving, float your swift and winding stream
To the mouth and then the delta, to the source of my blue dreams
Where all is love and all is water, all is hope and all is light
Melt away what separates us, take me into glory’s light

Mother Mary, Mother take me, Mother Mary show me how
Leave my pain and separation, Mother take me with you now

You know trouble, you know sorrow, you have seen this all before
You have heard so many prayers, I ask you now to hear one more

Mother Mary, Mother take me, Mother Mary show me how
Leave my pain and separation, Mother take me with you now x 2
