Mother’s Day

Why do you honor Mom today?
Because she gave you birth,
Because she fed and clothed you,
Does that comprise her worth?

To fill this special place,
That you might be instructed
In His ways and by His grace.

Her labors are not easy,
Her griefs, oft hard to bear,
Yet strengthened in her duty
She continues in her care.

Do not begrudge, but thank her
For correction that she gave,
For God so uses mothers
That their children He may save.

Yes, show your mother honor
Rise up and call her blest;
For she’s the instrument God gave
That He might be confessed.
