Mother Love

When God bestows His precious gift of a darling little child,

He fills each mother's tender heart with love so undefiled;

A selfless love that only seeks to give and give again,

Devoted care for every need, protection from all pain.

We thank Him on this Mother's Day for that great mother-love

Which He bestows so lavishly from His great heart above.

Because it speaks to us of Him - no bounds does His love know

It prompted Him to leave His Throne and die for us below.

So, as we honour mothers dear on this, their special day,

We lift our hearts in gratitude and to our God we pray

That He will cleanse these human hearts by His redeeming blood,

And by His Holy Spirit fill our hearts with perfect love.
