Oh little mama, I do understand.
The babe in your arms
put the world on your hands.
You’re burdened with pressures
that aren’t yours to bear.
You’re dusted with worry and plagued with the care
to raise him and serve him without one complaint,
to make him a hero—to make him a saint.
Oh little mama, let go of it all.
Just love him and train him
‘cuz he won’t stay small.
Oh warrior mama, I do understand.
That child by your side
thinks that he’s in command.
You’re burdened to help him
take charge of himself,
all the while keeping him safe on your shelf.
His wings are a flappin’. You want him to fly—
right after you shoot all the harm from the sky.
Oh warrior momma, let go of your bow.
Let him fight some battles.
The trials help him grow.
Oh anxious mama, I do understand.
That teen in your car
is becoming a man.
You’re burdened to show him
that he really needs
to humble himself before he takes the lead.
You want him confident. You want him bold.
But arrogant men can cause trouble untold.
Oh anxious mama, let go of your fears.
Help him esteem others
so pride disappears.
Oh tearful mama, I do understand.
That man in his home
has his future all planned.
Your burdened to see him
become someone great.
But he’s making choices that you would not make.
Your worried you failed him and don’t have a clue
how to fix your mistakes so that he can start new.
Oh tearful momma, let go of your role.
The Father has always
been there—in control.
