Representative Text

1 'Tis the month of our Mother,
The blessed and beautiful days,
When our lips and our spirits
Are glowing with love and with praise.

All hail! to dear Mary,
The guardian of our way,
To the fairest of Queen,
Be the fairest of seasons, sweet May.

2 Oh! what peace to her children,
'Mid sorrows and trials, to know
That the love of their Mother
Hath ever a solace for woe. [Chorus]

3 And what joy to the erring,
The sinful and sorrowful soul,
That a trust in her guidance
Will lead to a glorious goal. [Chorus]

4 Let us sing, then, rejoicing,
That God hath so honored our race
As to clothe with our nature
Sweet Mary, the Mother of Grace. [Chorus]
