Take My Mother Home

“Take My Mother Home,” performed by the men of Morehouse College, circa 2009. In my opinion, this is one of the most powerful and heartbreaking spirituals of all time.

Mary was at the foot of the cross during the Crucifixion. But she couldn’t give Jesus a kiss. She couldn’t hold his hand. She couldn’t smooth her baby’s hair or tell him it was going to be ok. Instead, he died. Our God died. And his Mom was there, watching.
