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.

‘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]
