Dear Mother God, your wings are warm around usAuthor: Janet Wootton
Published in 1 hymnal
1 Dear Mother God, your wings are warm around us,
we are enfolded in your love and care;
safe in the dark, your heartbeat's pulse surrounds us,
you call to us, for you are always there.
2 You call to us, for we are in your image.
We wait on you, the nest is cold and bare;
high overhead your wing-beats call us onward.
filled with your power, we ride the empty air.
3 Let not our freedom scorn the needs of others --
we climb the clouds until our strong heart sings;
may we enfold our sisters and our brothers,
till all are strong, till all have eagles' wings.
