Our Father in heaven, whose love is divine
Thanks for the love of a mother like mine.
In thy great mercy look down from above
And grant this dear mother the gift of Your love,
And all through the year, whatever betide her,
Assure her each day that you are beside her…
And, Father in heaven, show me the way
To lighten her tasks and brighten her day,
And bless her dear heart with insight to see
That her love means more than the world to me.
