MOTHER HEROIC Lyrics

by Björk

Oh, thou that bowest thy ecstatic face
Thy perfect sorrows are the world's to keep

Wherefore onto thy knee
Come weep with a prayer

Oh, thou that bowest thy ecstatic face
Thy perfect sorrows are the world's to keep

Wherefore onto thy knee
Come weep with a prayer

Mother heroic, mother glorious
Beholding in thy eye, immortal tears

Oh, thou that bowest thy ecstatic face, oh
