Mother Emanuel
by Shirley Caesar

Album: Mother Emanuel - Single

Oh Mama, mother Emanuel
You taught your children well
To Love instead of Hate
They did not discriminate
Standing strong against the gates of hell
Oh Mama, mother Emanuel

Verse 1
Oh Mama, mother Emanuel
You taught your children well
To color of their skin just can’t change the soul within
Loves a place where hate can never dwell
Oh Mama, mother Emanuel

(Emanuel, Emanuel)
Mother Emanuel
(Mother Emanuel)
Lord with us, hallelujah
(Lord with us)
Lord will never fail
Oh mama, mother Emanuel
(Mother Emanuel)

Verse 2
Sorry I won’t embrace, ? a stranger grace
You shed a better way, and you taught him how to pray
(You taught him how to pray)
Oh, oh, if there’s a sacred place, he met love face to face
Oh but he pulled the gun and change the world
(Changed the world)
For everyone

(Obama: Cynthia Hurd, Susie Jackson, Ethel Lance., DePayne Middleton-Doctor, Tywanda Sanders, Daniel L. Simmons, Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Myra Thompson…)
Oh Mama, mother Emanuel, you taught your children well
(taught them well)
A highway to live with courage
(With Courage, truth for keep)
Truth for keep, caring to believe that love will always prevail
(Love prevails)
Oh, Oh Mama
(mother Emanuel)
Oh, Mama, mama, mother Emanuel
(mother Emanuel)
Oh Yes, love is always with us
Thank you for your forgiving spirit
