  • Mother 's first look to the eyes of a child
    Casts the die of destiny
    It's a perfect life she gives to you
    Not to lose so innocently
    Leading the way, she rises above
    Unexpected adversity
    I hear her calling, keeper of the light
    The words of warning, thunder in the night
    I hear her calling, guarding what is right
    I see her waiting, keeper of the light

    A silhouette on the skyline, a symbol of your liberty
    Protecting time that's passing by
    Mother knows, never lies
    A better life the children will see
    A world of change, full of hope and sympathy

    I hear her calling, keeper of the light
    The words of warning, thunder in the night
    I hear her calling, guarding what is right
    I see her waiting, keeper of the light
