She Cries Out

She Cries Out (Original Music and Lyrics L. Solomon)


Chorus: She cries out for our children

She cries out for us all

When redemption comes upon us

God will listen to her call


In Genesis we meet her at a well

Jacob falls in love as the story does tell

For seven years he works for her dad

Only in the end to find out he’s been had

So seven years later when the work is done

Jacob and Rachel are finally one

Rachel watches her sister giving birth to many

And she prays and prays cause she doesn’t have any

Gives birth to Yoseph and while having Binyamin

She was cursed accidentally and it does her in.

So she’s buried in Bet Lechem along the way

And she looks out for her people every single day.  Chorus…


One by one they asked for us to be saved

Abraham to Isaac right down to King David

But God turned em all down saying the people are depraved

They gone off the path turned to evil ways

Rachel went on in and God turned her down too

Then she said – I gave up my life for you

I had a husband who was supposed to be all mine

But I gave my sister to him – I gave her the signs

Now I ask you God in the name of compromise

Please save our people from this dark demise

And God said to her your righteous ways

Have saved the Jewish people so they will have their day.  Chorus…


So for this matriarch Rachel it’s you we salute

A role model for all and a hero to boot

All the young ones who grow up will learn your story

How you never gave up and how you shared your glory

You fought for what’s right you gave it everything you had

You crossed the line when you had to eliminate the bad

You took some chances and sometimes you got burned

But the lessons you gave are sure to be learned

By everyone around from young to old

They’ll see your insight and the steps you took to be bold

So keep crying out for God to redeem our nation

We remember what you did in every generation.  Chorus…
