In recognition of our Motherís and the preciousness of their love.

THE SAD STORY OF SISERAíS MOTHER, WHO WATCHED FOR HIM AT THE LATTICE

( Judges 5:26-28)

26 She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples.

27 At her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay down: at her feet he bowed, he fell: where he bowed, there he fell down dead.

28 The mother of Sisera looked out at a window, and cried through the lattice, Why is his chariot so long in coming? why tarry the wheels of his chariots?

This story is one of the saddest stories within the pages of the Bible, but it surely gives us a fitting and vivid picture of a Mother who waited for her son to come home. I hope you enjoy hearing the Sharon Singers sing this song. And I hope it brings memories of your mother.


You Can Always Come Home



She stands on the front porch, tear drops in her eyes.
Watches as the young man says goodbye.
Silently she breathes a prayer,
That God would protect him when he's gone,
And last of all she speaks to him alone.

Son remember, you can always come home.
Any time any place, any trouble that comes,
Doesn't matter where you've gone or what you've done.
If you have nothing left and you're looking for rest,
Son remember, you can always come home.

Crouching In an alley, hungry, tired and cold,
After years of living in the world.
Suddenly his thoughts go back,
To the day he had left his father's home,
And what his mother said before he'd gone.

Son remember, you can always come home,
Any time, any place, any trouble that comes.
Doesn't matter where you've gone or what you've done.
If you have nothing left and you're looking for rest,
Son remember, you can always come home.

Prodigals, I beg you not go too far,
There's a place that loves you as you are,
It's the only place on earth that,
You can be sure wont let you down.
The door is wide, the light is always on.

Son remember, you can always come home.
Any time any place, any trouble that comes,
Doesn't matter where you've gone or what you've done.
If you have nothing left and you're looking for rest,
Son remember, you can always come home.
