ive thought about you and the way you must have felt.
the bitterness of the hand that you were dealt.
how your a long ways from your Bethlehem.
and you long for the touch of your husband
Elimelech, you'll never forget.
Later on your two sons had taken wives
the bitterness you'd taste again for they lost their lives
then your heart was longing for the reasons why
and painful tears where falling from your eyes
like winters skies, all mothers fear
so all was gone except the wife of one son
then you returned to the land where you were from
where the curse was lifted and the town all came
to see you, a woman in all her pain, you changed your name
mara naomi, the bitter one
mara naomi, oh your beautiful
there is a plan
in harvest time came a man from your husbands line
a noble son, worthy one, generous and kind
how your heart was racing for the widowed girl
and your only hope is that he would change her world
and take the girl, in his arms
alas they wed as it's said they have a son
given to you how its true its just begun
for the child you hold leads to the King of Kings
redemption, peace and hope he brings
of whom heaven sings
you were more than you knew
