MAMA WHO BORE ME (REPRISE)
(WENDLA & GIRLS)

Mama who bore me
Mama who gave me
Mama the angels
Who made me so sad

Mama who bore me
Mama who gave me
No way to handle things
Who made me so sad

Mama, the weeping
Mama, the angels
No sleep in Heaven, or Bethlehem

Some pray that, one day, Christ will come a-calling
They light a candle, and hope that it glows
And some just lie there, crying for him to come and find them
But when he comes, they don't know how to go

Mama who bore me
Mama who gave me (Mama the angels, Mama)
No way to handle things
Who made me so sad

Mama, the weeping
Mama, the angels
No sleep in Heaven, or Bethlehem
