Whisper words of…….

I was a toddler in 1969, but Paul McCartney wrote one of the most impactful songs for many generations. We can learn so much from the lyrics of songs. Let it be is one of the famous Beatle songs. In the song, you will hear the phrase, “Whisper words of wisdom.”

It begins with, “When I find myself in times of trouble,” “Mother Mary comes to me.” I have always thought it was talking about the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus. However, after researching, Paul’s mother was also named Mary, and she died when he was a young child. In interviews, Paul revealed he thought of his mother when he wrote the song.

There was violence in Ireland and wars in Vietnam and worldwide during 1969 when Paul was writing the song. Let it be was speaking to these events. Let it allow us to find comfort and not think about the sad things or what we cannot control. Paul was trying to send also a message, “Although they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see. There will be an answer– Let it be.”

Let it Be

It is not 1969, but we have wars worldwide, and we find ourselves in trouble. Whisper words of wisdom to those you love, serve and value. We continue to “let it be.” There will be an answer for this vision for peace and joining John Lennon to imagine a more peaceful world.

Lyrics-Let it Be

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right it front of me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be 
Let it be, let it be 
Whisper words of wisdom 
Let it be 

And when the broken hearted people 
Living in the world agree 
There will be an answer 
Let it be 
For though they may be parted there is 
still a chance that they will see 
There will be an answer 
Let it be 

Let it be, let it be 
Let it be, let it be 
yeah, there will be an answer 
Let it be 

And when the night is cloudy 
There is still a light that shines on me 
Shine until tomorrow 
Let it be 
I wake up to the sound of music 
Mother Mary comes to me 
Speaking words of wisdom 
Let it be 

Let it be, let it be 
Let it be, let it be 
There will be an answer 
Let it be
