Representative Text

1 ‘Tis mother’s day, O restful day,
To wait and worship mother’s God,
To feel her sprit near at hand,
Our comfort and our staff and rod.

Refrain:
‘Tis mother’s day,
‘Tis mother’s day,
The day on which our hearts delight,
Our loving tribute now we pay,
With sweet carnations pure and white.

2 ‘Tis mother’s day, O mem’ry day,
Sweet as the perfume of the flow’r,
Rich as the choicest gold of life,
She is to us from hour to hour. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis mother’s day, O, holy day,
We’ll garland now her name so sweet,
With crowns of pure carnations white,
And place them at our mother’s feet. [Refrain]

4 ‘Tis mother’s day, and all is well,
She’s ever with us, blessed thought;
Can we forget her memory,
And all the golden deeds she wrought? [Refrain]
