Song facts

Mother and Father Holding Their Child” is a track from Paul McCartney and Carl Davis’s 1991 classical piece “Liverpool Oratorio“. This is the fifth track of the first movement entitled “WAR”:

WAR. 1942. A world at war. Sirens sound as bombs fall over Liverpool and despairing couples shelter underground. Amid the blaze and the chaos of an air raid, a child is born. And there is hope.

Description of the WAR Movement – liner notes

Lyrics

CHORUS
Mother and father holding their child,
Not knowing what future magic lies inside.
We open our hearts,
You open the door
To peace and happiness for evermore,
For us for evermore.
