All Through the Night

Mother, take me so that I might be
An instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, I will speak of love
When there is injury, I’ll try to ease

Where there is doubt, I’ll keep the faith
Where there’s despair, hope will remain
Where there is darkness, I will bring light
With the song I sing all through the night

Mother, take me so that I might be
An instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, I will speak of love
Where there is sadness, I’ll bring revelry

Where there is doubt, I’ll keep the faith
Where there’s despair, hope will remain
Where there is darkness, I will bring light
With the song I sing all through the night

May I offer more than I ask for
And give understanding without need
I will give away love at every chance
For it is in giving that we receive

Mother, take me so that I might be
An instrument of your peace
Where there is darkness, I will bring light
With the song I sing all through the night
