Can You Hear Me?
Lyrics Danielle Rose

My child, my child now gone from me,
My heart is like an empty sea.
My womb is like an open grave.
The pain is buried deep away.
O I should weep a thousand years.
The sea could not contain my tears for you.

Mama, can you hear me now?
Iʼm singing with the angels dancing ʻround.
Mama, do not be afraid.
My love for you will never change;
Iʼve always loved you.
And every tear Iʼve seen you weep
Is held by Godʼs ocean of mercy.

Mother Mary is it true?
My child is there in heaven with you?
Will you call my child by name?
And give the love I never gave?
O Mary will you hold my child in your arms?
Mary, will you let me hold my child in your arms?
Mary, will you hold us both in your arms to rest,
To rest in peace.
