AND IF YOU TAKE MY HAND, MY SON, ALL WILL BE WELL WHEN THE DAY IS DONE

A favorite song from my childhood ran through my head when I saw this...

Tell me why you're crying, my son
I know you're frightened, like everyone
Is it the thunder in the distance you fear?
Will it help if I stay very near?
I am here.

Refrain:
And if you take my hand my son
All will be well when the day is done.
And if you take my hand my son
All will be well when the day is done.
Day is done, day is done
Day is done, day is done

Do you ask why I'm sighing, my son?
You shall inherit what mankind has done.
In a world filled with sorrow and woe
If you ask me why this is so, I really don't know.

(refrain)

Tell me why you're smiling my son
Is there a secret you can tell everyone?
Do you know more than men that are wise?
Can you see what we all must disguise
Through your loving eyes?

I love this song, what beautiful memories from my mom's Peter, Paul and Mary days. Fits so perfect with the photo. That photo says it all.
