lyrics

Litany (Mother Help Us to take Heed)
words & music, ©2000 Jamie Fota
.
Her tears are spilling over, her tears flow endlessly;
She’s crying for the hungry, and the homeless on the streets.

Mother, help us to take heed! Help us regain dignity!
Mother listen to our plea! Help us restore sanctity!

Her sorrow’s spilling over, her sorrow grows endlessly;
She’s aching for the lonely and oppressed minorities.

Mother, help us to take heed! Help us regain dignity!
Mother listen to our plea! Help us restore sanctity!

With the voices of our ancestors, speaking of responsibility,
She’s saddened for the future as the air gets harder to breathe.
She watches as we plunder the earth beneath our feet,
And she sobs for all the wild things displaced by insanity!

Mother, help us to take heed! Help us regain dignity!
Mother listen to our plea! Help us restore sanctity!
