While the women are in Maegor's Holdfast during battle, Sansa has them sing this hymn to keep them calm.
Gentle Mother, Font of Mercy is a hymn in the world of Game of Thrones, within the religion of the Faith of the Seven. It is a prayer to the aspect of the Seven-Faced God known as The Mother, who is associated with motherhood, compassion, and mercy. The hymn prays to the Mother for Her protection during war, though it has a decidedly anti-war message urging that the Mother stop all fighting and that She will teach people "a kinder way" than warfare. (Lyrics) Gentle Mother, font of mercy, Save our sons from war, we pray. Stay the swords and stay the arrows, Let them know a better day. Gentle Mother, strength of women, Help our daughters through this fray. Soothe the wrath and tame the fury, Teach us all a kinder way. Gentle Mother, font of mercy, Save our sons from war, we pray. Stay the swords and stay the arrows, Let them know a better day.
