More than 30 years ago, after the Estonian Language Mother’s Day service in Cleveland, asked my husband’s niece who does not speak Estonian, why even men are wiping tears when singing “Mother’s Heart?” That night my husband sat down and wrote the translation  - a very good one, in my opinion - that can also be sung in English.
