#Tunesday: Share this @CinciMUSEChoir song with Mom for #MothersDay

Just as the Swedenborgian Church of North America welcomes and celebrates women’s roles in the church as ordained ministers, so do we celebrate a woman’s strength and voice with this great song by MUSE, Cincinnati’s Women’s Choir for Mother’s Day:

Lyrics copyright Betsy Rose:

COMING INTO MY YEARS
by Betsy Rose

Well, I’m a gray-haired woman and I’m comin’ into my years
I’m a weathered woman and I’m comin’ into my years
No more holding back, no more tryin’ to please
Got the will and the power to get off my knees.

I’m an aging woman and I’m comin’ into my years.

I’m a street-wise woman and I’m comin’ into my prime
I’m a fight-back woman and I’m comin’ into my prime
No more shrinking with fear when they whistle and jeer
I got a fist that’s hard, a mind that’s clear.

I’m a night-walk woman and I’m comin’ into my prime.

And I’m a loud mouthed woman and I’m comin’ into my voice
I’m a talk-back woman and I’m comin’ into my voice
Cause there’s an ocean of words got caught in my throat
Gonna let loose the waters and learn how to float.

I’m a sing-out woman comin’ into my voice.

And I’m a fighting woman and I’m comin’ into my strength
I’m a make-change woman and I’m comin’ into my strength
I won’t save the world, I won’t drain my song
But I’ll fight any battle that’ll move us along.

I’m a far-sighted woman comin’ into my strength.

I’m a loving woman and I’m comin’ into my all.
I’m a heart-beat woman and I’m comin’ into my all.
Well I’ll go for passion, I’ll go for strength
I’ll go for the moment and I’ll go for the length

I’m a give-take woman and I’m comin’ into my all.
