THE MOTHER'S DAY SONG

Once each year on Sunday
There comes such a special day,
A day to honor mothers
In a somewhat special way.
We send them gifts and flowers,
And a card that tries to say
How we appreciate our mothers
More then just in May.

Oh mother, thank you!
Thank you for giving my life to me.
Oh mother, thank you!
Thank you for mending my torn up knee.
Oh mother, thank you!
Thank you for teaching me how to pray.
Oh mother, thank you!
Thank you for helping me on my way.

But after Mother's Day is gone,
We seldome find the time
To think about our mothers,
Or to call them for a dime.
We act as though to show them love,
Would constitute a crime
Oh how selfish it appears,
When deeds and words dont ryhme.

Oh mother, thank you!
Thank you for giving my life to me,
Oh mother, thank you!
Thank you for mending up my torn knee.
Oh mother, thank you!
Thank you for teaching me how to pray,
Oh mother, thank you!
Thank you for helping me on my way.

We've gathered here to honor
Mothers everywhere today,
The ones who gave us everything
By knowing how to pray.
And, in this hour once a year
We're hoping we can say,
The thanks we seldom say to her
Goin on our way.

Let's thank our mothers
Thank them on every day of the week,
Let's thank our mothers
Thank them in deed, not in words that we speak.
Please thank your mother
Turn to her now and smile and say,
"Oh thank you, mother
Thank you for helping me on my way!"
"We love you and that's all we'd like to say!"

MOMS

To the sweetest mom in all the world
This is a special wish
To make this very special day
A very special treat
But when this day is passed and gone
You mom will still be mom.
Still caring and still sharing
In those very special ways
To the nicest mom on earth
I say, "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY."

MORE THAN A MOTHER

When God set the world in place,
When He hung the stars up in space,
When He made the land and the sea,
Then He made you and me.
He sat back and saw all that was good,
He saw things to be as they should.
Just one more blessing He had in store;
He created a mother, but whatever for?
He knew a mother would have a special place
To shine His reflection on her child's face.
A mother will walk the extra mile
Just to see her children smile.
She'll work her fingers to the bone
To make a house into a home.
A mother is there to teach and guide,
A mother will stay right by your side.
She'll be there through your pain and strife,
She'll stay constant in your life.
A mother will lend a helping hand
Until you have the strength to stand.
She'll pick you up when you are down,
When you need a friend she'll stick around.
A mother is one who listens well,
Will keep her word; will never tell.
A mother never pokes or pries
But stands quietly by your side,
Giving you the strength you need,
Encouraging you to succeed.
A mother is one who can be strong
When you need someone to lean on.
You're more than a mother to me;
A reflection of Him in your face I see,
A love that knows no boundaries.
I'm glad that you chose to be
All this and more to me.
You share a love that knows no end,
You're more than my mother,
You are my friend.
