It was a dear sweet patient mother
   Ruled our childhood home so dear,
Living always for her children
   Guiding more by love than fear;
It was she who smoothed our pillow
   With a loving touch so true,
It was she who watched in sickness
   Was our friend in trouble too.

May God bless that gentle mother
   With her locks of silver gray,
With her hands made rough by labor
   That have helped to smooth our way;
May her last years be made brighter
   By her childrens' loving care,
May she feel the love they give her
   May she find peace everywhere.
