When God made His highest creation
From the earth’s cold, lifeless sod,
He gave each one a living soul
In the image of his God!
To some, He gave great wisdom,
Let them see the wider view,
So when trouble touch His love ones
He could share it with them too.
Others gave He words of beauty,
So when men the truth do seek,
He might plant it in their conscience
Through the words that he could speak.
Yes,…to each He gave a talent
To be used on earth below
To improve the world around us
As on through life we go!
But…to each He gave another gift
That outshines any other,
To help us know of joy and love
He gave us each a mother!
Her gentle love will never fail
Through life’s bitter trouble and strife,
And for those she loves the most,
She would gladly give her life!
So hasten to tell her you love her
And help to brighten their way,
Return some of the love she’s given to you,
This year on Mother’s day!
