10 Christian Mother’s Day Hymns to Listen To On Mother’s Day

O My Father

“In the heav’ns are parents single?

No, the thought makes reason stare!

Truth is reason; truth eternal

Tells me I’ve a mother there…

Father, Mother, may I meet you

In your royal courts on high?”

All Creatures of Our God and King

“Dear Mother Earth, who day by day

Unfoldest blessings on our way”

For the Beauty of the Earth

“For the joy of human love,

Brother, sister, parent, child,

Friends on earth, and friends above,

For all gentle thoughts and mild”

Each Life that Touches Ours for Good

“What greater gift dost thou bestow,

What greater goodness can we know

Than Christlike friends, whose gentle ways

Strengthen our faith, enrich our days.“

Sing Praise to Him

“As with a mother’s tender hand,

He leads his own, his chosen band.

To him all praise and glory!”

“Now Thank We All Our God” 

“Who, from our mothers’ arms,

Hath blessed us on our way

With countless gifts of love

And still is ours today.“

Jesus Savior Pilot Me

“As a mother stills her child,

Thou canst hush the ocean wild;”

Faith of Our Mothers

“1 Faith of our mothers, living still

In cradle song and bedtime prayer;

In nursery lore and fireside love,

Thy presence still pervades the air.

Faith of our mothers, living faith,

We will be true to thee till death.

2 Faith of our mothers, loving faith,

Fount of our childhood’s trust and grace,

Oh, may thy consecration prove

Source of a finer, nobler race;

Faith of our mothers, loving faith,

We will be true to thee till death.

3 Faith of our mothers, guiding faith,

For youthful longing, youthful doubt,

How blurred our vision, blind our way,

Thy providential care without.

Faith of our mothers, guiding faith,

We will be true to thee till death.

4 Faith of our mothers, Christian faith,

In truth beyond our stumbling creeds,

Still serve the home and save the Church,

And breathe thy spirit through our deeds;

Faith of our mothers, Christian faith,

We will be true to thee till death.”

My Mothers Love

“My mother’s voice, the power of her teachings,

Live in my soul and guide me still today.

Her caring ways, her timeless words of wisdom

Come forth to help me through each day.

In each challenge, each choice,

Above the world’s noise, I hear my mother’s voice.

My mother’s faith, her prayers of earnest pleading,

Turned me to God in moments of despair.

Her calm assurance of His tender caring

Taught me to turn to Him in prayer.

Through my darkest of days I reach to feel His grace.

Such was my mother’s faith.

My mother’s hands that lifted and protected,

Those loving hands that soothed my fevered brow

Were as a shield from every earthly trial,

And still, the memory helps me now.

And my heart is aware, the strength that I now share

Came from my mother’s hands.

My mother’s voice will live in me forever.

A steady anchor for my reaching soul,

As generations climb the path together to sweet eternities untold.

My mother’s love, the essence of her being,

Flows in and through me every waking hour.

A quiet strength grew from her constant caring,

A legacy of saving power.

By her words and her touch she strengthened me so much.

I felt my mother’s love.”

A Mother Lined a Basket

“1 A mother lined a basket

to keep her baby dry,

then rocked him on a river,

lest he awake and cry.

She let a princess name him

her son that he might live.

God’s people had a leader.

She had such hope to give.

2 A mother sewed a jacket,

lined in the softest wool,

then dressed her little boy-child,

her cup of blessing full.

She brought him to the temple

where he would serve and live.

God’s people had a prophet.

She had such faith to give.

3 A mother laid her baby

in manger lined with straw;

then, in the shepherds’ story,

his call from God foresaw.

She nurtured him and taught him

the way that he must live.

God’s people had a savior.

She had such love to give.

4 Like Jochebed and Hannah,

and Mary too, we know

the hardest part of loving

is learning to let go,

so when we send our children

out in the world to live,

grant us such hope and faith, God,

and love enough to give.”
