Graceful Woman ~ written for my Grandmother

Copyright © 2005 Kelli Caldwell

ROUGH A CAPPELLA VERSION!


Texte alternatif



If I be a woman someday—
Lord give me courage to follow her way—
If I be a mother in my distant future
Dare I aspire to be counted beside her?

If I be teacher of leaders and lovers
Lend me her wisdom and patience with others

      
If I—could be—
Half of the woman I see before me
If she—could see—
Just for one moment what she’s meant to me

Lord love the woman, graceful woman
Lord love the woman, graceful woman

 

If I be a woman someday—
Lord guide my feet, lest I wander astray—
If I be a traveler cross your salty waters
Meet me in Bangkok and call me your daughter

If I be a lover of mover of mountains
God give me strength should I face life without him

      
If I—could be—
Half of the woman I see before me
If she—could see—
Just for one moment what she’s meant to me

Lord love the woman, graceful woman
Lord love the woman, graceful woman

 

If I be a woman someday—
Lord make me worthy of honor, I pray

If I be applauded as leader of leaders
Lord keep me humble, defeat my defeaters

And when I’m a mother of mothers and fathers
Lord bless me with memories of peace and of laughter

 

If I—could be—
Half of the woman I see before me
If she—could see—
Just for one moment what she’s meant to me

 Lord love the woman, graceful woman
Lord love the woman, graceful woman

Graceful woman



Lyric notes: An Irish melody written for and about my Grandmother, Doris Caldwell, who called me her “most Irish relative” and was one of my best role models in life. She passed away in her sleep in 2011.
