Oh Grandmother

Oh, grandmother, are you listening? Oh, grandmother, are you listening? Oh, grandmother, I’m calling you Oh, grandmother, I’m calling you

Oh, the night is so long, the night is so dark!
Will you sing me a song? Will you kindle a spark? How did you find your way
through the dark of the night
To the light of the new day?
How did you find your way
through the dark of the night
To the light of the day?

Oh, granddaughter, I am listening Oh, granddaughter, I am listening Oh, granddaughter, I’m calling you Oh, granddaughter, I’m calling you

When the night is so long, the night is so dark I will sing you a song, may it kindle a spark And you will find your way
through the dark of the night

To the light of the new day And you will find your way through the dark of

the night To the light of the day
