A Christian Mother
God gives many gifts,
But far above any other,
The first and best He gives us
Is the gift of a Christian mother.
Her head bows over the scriptures
Teaching children from God's Word
Her hands are always busy
Doing service for her Lord.
Whenever her children need her
They know she's always there.
Her beauty's in the strength of faith
That she daily finds in prayer
Her children love and bless her,
And in their lives we see
The lessons of the Saviour
That were learned at mother's knee.
