Mother of love

Verily I say this hour
All our sorrows are given in love
And all our sufferings
Are but protection from the sun
Lest we be burnt
By the fiery truth
Blessed be, blessed be

But soon will come the time
Whenst we receiveth the light
And then this vessel
Canst hold eternal love in the breast
And withstand the flames
Then shalt we be dressed
Shalt we be dressed…

Mother of love
River of life
She holdeth her children
Who slumber in the dead of night

Her star in the flowers
Her tears in the sea
All manner of loving
Is given by She
Is given by She…

And how canst a soul know
How to receive and redeem?
Love comes for thy brother,
Thy sister and then thee
An act of grace
Be ye free, be ye free

Purify the body
And then purify the mind
Give thanks for all infirmities
For they keep lovers blind
Until they have grown
Eyes to see
Eyes to see
Eyes to see

Mother of love
River of life
From all things under heaven
She weans every child

Her song on the mountain
Her kiss on the breeze
All manner of mercy
Is given by She
Is given by She

Mother of love
River of life
Heroic surrender
Exquisite the light

She giveth balm to the broken
She brings pride to its knees
All manner of healing
Is given by She
Is given by She

Mother of love
River of life
Each breath that sustaineth
Is Her sacrifice

Each prayer is her pardon
Each karma her key
All manner of wisdom
Is given by She
Is given by She

Thunderheart, Mother of love
