Rocks The Cradle

Blessed is the woman's hand
May angels guard it's strength and grace
Know the road from good and evil
Keep the soul from the devil's place

Spare the rod and spoil the child
Raise one up in the way they should go

The hand that rocks the cradle
From the cradle to the grave
A mama has a say on how her baby is raised
From the first step to the last breath
A mama's steady love is stable
The hand that rocks the cradle

Blessed is the woman's mission
From birth to 6 feet under the sod
Prays to keep a young heart open
Always to the breath of God

The hand that rocks is the hand that rules
For a child will follow in his mama's shoes

Chorus: Repeat

Don't rock the hand that rocks you
There's some things you just don't do

Chorus: Repeat
