Father in Heaven, hear this prayer,
For all the Mothers everywhere.
Humbly we ask Thee to be near,
Giving them courage, strength and cheer.
Grant that each mother e ' er may be
Zealously living, Lord, for Thee,
Serving Thee gladly every day,
Joyously walking in Thy way.
Watch over every child of Thine,
Tenderly guide with love divine,
Shed Thy dear grace to help and bless,
Bringing glad joy and happiness.
Grant that each child for Mother's sake,
When in the world his way must make,
Ever shall do his Father's will,
Faithful and true to Mother still.
