God is Mother too

It’s been a while since I was here, I have been busy over on the other side at https://brandrewmuses.wordpress.com writing and sharing others’ and my Poetry and others’ Photography and Art. I posted a piece of poetry there called “O God my Mother” which was written while Jessica and I attended the Wesleyan Chapel in Pott’s Point near Kings Cross in Sydney Australia. Our Pastor there decided to hold a work shop on the feminine aspects of God and that is what I wrote.

N.B. Scripture does not infer God to be Mother though God has many relationships with Israel throughout the Ages such as Bridegroom

e.g. Isaiah 54:5 English Standard Version (ESV)

For your Maker is your husband,
    the Lord of hosts is his name;
and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer,
    the God of the whole earth he is called.

A hymn and set to music, it has a Refrain and 5 verses.

God is Mother too

Refrain:

Mother God, Mother God,Show us your Face, Mother God.
Let us see you smiling when the moon is full again.
Remind us of your constant love, Mother God.

Verses:

God is Mother too,
she created us to love us tenderly.
To dandle us on Her knees and cradle us in Her arms.
To caress our little faces
With the strong and gentle breeze.

God is Mother too,
She created us that we might be family,
To join Her in the morning raising the dawning
Settling the atoms vibrating
In the strong and gentle breeze.

God is Mother too,
As Her family she begged us to be just,
To love the stranger as our brother, in other words, like us!
To let the kookaburra cackle mightily
In the strong and gentle breeze.

God is Mother too,
She knows that children will be wayward.
And hate the stranger, kill the brother: just like us!
Play cruel games with fin and paw
In the strong but fierce breeze.

God is Mother too,
Be glad that God is mother too!
Hers is the hand which produced the rainbow,
hers the tongue which bartered with Abraham,
hers the hand which gave Jesus,
The strongest, the bravest, Son of his mother.
