“Mother’s Heart”

I sing the songs of our forefathers —

And add a verse for you!

Say a prayer to Lord Jesus,

To see us safely through.

Don’t let us be a martyr

To those who hate our homeland —

Heal the pain, so cruelly given,

Please help us understand —

The need to reach each other

To give a helping hand.

Seeking the wisdom of the ages —

With strength to save our land.

As you slumber in your cradle

With innocence and peace —

A tear is shed for you

Please let this hatred cease!!!
