Made from God’s most precious matter,
Like angels sent to bless the earth.
Mothers give us life and nurture,
Longed for us before our birth.
Mothers plead and beg and bargain,
To God above to hear their prayer.
Protect my children, Lord and Savior,
Keep them safe and always near.
We owe a debt to our dear mothers.
The price is not so very steep.
The best we can is all she asks for,
As Christ has said, Come follow me.
Soon our mothers are no more with us.
In paradise, they have their rest.
Mothers are as guardian angels,
Guiding, watching, loving best.
And a note to my own mother,
You’re the one I hold most dear.
I love you most and hold you sacred.
To you, I give my soul sincere.
