O mother’s love, sweet mothers love,
The gift devine from heav’n above,
It lifts our thoughts to realms of light
And bids us see the good and right;
God knew the need of humankind,
The depths of sin our souls might find,
And so to keep us pure and fair,
We have a mother’s love and pray’r.
O mother’s love, the sweetest known,
The richest earthly gift we own,
For it our thanks shall clearly wing
To reach the throne of God, our King;
Our praise shall seek the Lord of pow’r
For blessing known this festal hour;
Ah, far above all gifts devine,
The love opf mothers brightly shine.
O mother’s love, so blest and true,
That guides and keeps our lifetime through:
Through sacrifice and service dear,
Its depth and sweetness shine more clear:
It is to us a precious gift
That lives to bless and bends to lift;
With lifted hearts we send above
Our gratitude for mother’s love.
Tune – “Sweet Hour Of Prayer”
