Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

O blessed day of motherhood

Full Text

1. O blessèd day of motherhood!
We lift our hearts in praise,
To thank the Source of every good:
Thy joy crowns all our days.
O God, our Father, bless this day,
Enrich its golden store
Of blessèd mother love, and may
Thy children Thee adore.

2. O gracious day of motherhood!
Our faith, by God increased,
Hath each alluring foe withstood;
Our souls He hath released.
O God, our Father, bless this day,
Enrich its golden store
Of gracious mother love, and may
Thy children Thee adore.

3. O precious day of motherhood!
Teach us in Christ to find
The greater gifts of brotherhood;
Bring peace to all mankind.
O God, our Father, bless this day,
Enrich its golden store
Of precious mother love, and may
Thy children Thee adore.

4. O wondrous day of motherhood!
Thy love to all abound;
Beside the cross once Mary stood;
Again let love be crowned.
O God, our Father, bless this day,
Enrich its golden store
Of wondrous mother love, and may
Thy children Thee adore.
