A Mother's Love
A mother's love is from above
A gift from Him whose love is true
It goes beyond the skies above
And reaches out to me and you
A mother's love is for her child
A mother's love is free
For mothers are a gift from God
A gift to you and me

This love from God
A mother's treasure
and such a pleasure and long
It shall forevermore endure
The sons' and daughters' song

This love from God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever say
It goes beyond the furthest star
And reaches to the lowest way
This love so sure shall still endure
All measureless and strong
An erring child is reconciled
And pardoned from his wrong (Chorus)

If I were asked to weigh the love
That from a mother's heart springs free,
All scales would break and not contain
The gift she gives to you and me.
How can I weigh so great a love?
There is only one thing to say
"This love is less than my tomorrow,
And more than my yesterday." (Chorus)

Lionel Hartley, Mother's Day 1994.
Tune: The Love Of God (1917) by F. M. Lehman
