“Our Mother Holds Us in Her Love” Song Video

The Bible includes images of the Divine as Mother. Our Loving Mother not only gives birth to Her children, but also comforts and nurtures us toward our full potential (Isaiah 66:13; Hosea 11:3-4). Her relationship with us is so strong that nothing can ever break it (Isaiah 49:15). 

Our Mother holds us in Her love;
She embraces all.
She gives us peace like a gentle dove;
we can feel Her calling.

Our Mother holds us in Her peace,
now and every day.
Her comfort comes and will never cease;
She is with us always.

“Mother” and other female names and images of the Divine are in the Bible. But patriarchal church and culture have buried them for centuries. The Female Divine is now rising in power and glory to bring healing peace to our individual lives and to our world. “She is with us always.”
