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 in 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

There will be an answer, let it be

 

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be

Whisper 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 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, yeah, let it be

There will be an answer, let it be

 

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
