Beatles – Let It Be lyrics

When i find myself in times of trouble
Mother mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be. yeah
There will be an answer, let it be.

And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me,
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

    Although literally about his Mum, the links to his Christian roots and the Blessed Virgin Mary, is too strong to ignore. Even Lennon mocked in the album, "and now hark the herald angels come", as he saw with its reference to Mary and the organ, a hymn-like quality to it. Mary the Mother of God, is referred to by Catholics as Our Lady Seat of Wisdom, and if Paul McCartney came from the Catholic side of Liverpool, he would have known this title, as most Catholics do. I do find it quite strange that Paul was so sad during "Let It Be" album. He had just married the woman who has been the love of his life, his true love, Linda. I wonder what she thought of him singing of how hard his life was just as he married her?! But it was a time of great change and arguments with the band members over money. And in feeling guidance in a dream, this too has a biblical root to Mary, whose husband Joseph was told in a dream to marry Mary, as she had got pregnant by a miracle. I often think Paul has a "public" version he says to people and then a private one. "Hey Jude" is I think about John, but he maintains publicly it is about John's son, Julian.

    These people are the messengers of the eternity. They are telling us to take it as it come. To be naturaly as the "i am that i am". I do hope that this words will increase the conciousness of humankind so we can enjoy the world fullest. They has the order to uplift the humankind. In this type of expression they are so powerful for million of peolpe. May deep peace be with them and the humankind. Sadikan raymond. (suriname).
