They are faces in photographs, heads all held high
Not afraid to look life in the eye
They were women with backbone, keepers of the flame
With a spirit even hard times couldn’t tame
And I know that this same blood is in me
And I meet their gaze one by bone
Eyes strong and clear, I still feel them near
These are the women I come from
The faith that sustained them is bred in my bones
I know what I’m made of, and where I belong
‘Cause these are the women I come from
What did life bring them, what pain did they know
Stories the pictures didn’t show
They were lovers of babies and lovers of God
With lessons and laughter in their songs
Did they dream better dreams for their children
As they prayed silent prayers in the night
“Lord make their way clear, and always be near”
Now I have my own child beside me
And we gaze at them all one by one
Her eyes strong and clear, I draw her near and say
These are the women you come from
The faith that sustained them is bred in your bones
You’ll know what you’re made of and where you belong–
‘Cause these are the women, survivors each one
They aren’t always easy, but were loving and strong
The life force inside them is still going on
‘Cause these are the women we come from
