Every Mother’s Tears

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

1. It doesn’t matter whether she gave birth to them or not.
Her heart knows they’re her children and a precious gift she got.
But every time she hears them cry, Mom cries a little too,
For all the taking, fixing, healing she would like to do.

Refrain 1:
She cries a billion tears of love and fear,
And through all the years may she know
That the Spirit bright shines the Light
To make a rainbow
From every mother’s tears.

2. Even when they move away, she carries them around,
And somewhere deep inside her, every mother knows the sound
Of all the hopes and happiness her children want and plan.
How she would love to wrap each one and place it in their hands!
Refrain 1:

We want to hold them tightly,
But we need to let them go
And let our tears wash over them
To help our children grow!

3. It doesn’t matter whether we gave birth to them or not.
We take care of God’s children and the precious gift we got.
And every time we hear them cry, we cry a little too,
With thanks for all the taking, fixing, healing God can do!

God bless each mother’s tears.

Refrain 2:
We cry a billion tears of love so dear,
And through all the years may we know
That the Spirit bright shines the Light
To make a rainbow
From every mother’s tears.
