come mother heart of the city

Come mother heart of the city

Throw off the depression that weighed you down

Open your eyes to see your children

They long to have you nurture them back to life

 

Remember your dreams of a better future

Where children ran free with smiles on their faces

 

Remember the hopes of owning a land

Where you could determine how your children grew up

 

Come mother heart of the city

Find your home around God’s table again

Listen to the beat of his Kingdom come

You are the song keeper – holding, interpreting

 

Come mother heart of the city

Reach out to the brokenhearted

Open your arms to welcome the stranger

Compel the city to your unity, to your hope

 

Come mother heart of the city

Find your healing here
