O Mother's Love

Representative Text

1 O mother's love, sweet mother's love,
The gift divine from heaven above!
It lifts our thoughts to realms above,
And bids us see the good and right.
God knows the need of humankind,
The depth of sin our souls may find,
And so, to keep us pure and fair,
We have a mother's love and prayer.

2 O mother's love, the sweetest known,
The richest earthly gift we own!
Our grateful thanks shall clearly ring
To reach the throne of God, our King.
Our praise shall seek the Lord of power
For blessings known this festal hour,
For, far above all gifts divine
The love of mothers brightly shine.

3 O mother's love, so blest and true,
That guides and keeps our lifetime through,
Through sacrifice and service dear,
Its depths of sweetness shine more clear.
It is to us a precious gift
That lives to bless and bends to give;
With lifted hearts we send above
Our gratitude for mother's love.
