“Deep within her breast of clay, filled with love from day to day;
All for you from life’s first start, is your mother’s holy heart.
Heart of passion, peace and prayer; heart of mother’s daily care;
For her children one and all, should they stand or should they fall.
Heart endowed with God’s own love, filled with goodness from above;
Heart that cheers and wishes well, when your life has turned pell-mell.
Blessed heart—that gift from God; heart that softens cruelest rod;
Heart that weeps and heart that prays, all her life-long earthly days.”
(Pastor Anthony Slutz)
