If all the love of every mother
From Hawwa to the one
Who walks the sands of motherhood
Before this verse is done
Were all combined into one love,
A drop is all there’d be
Upon a wave that rolls across
A love that’s like the sea.
So send, my Lord, your rahmah on
Our sinful hearts afire
And let your mercy enter in
That when the midnight darkness falls
Upon a silent town
You find a heart that weeps and calls
For mercy to come down.
