Wonderful Mother – by Patrick O’Relly
God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old:
He made her smile of the sunshine.
And he moulded her heart of gold;
In her eyes he placed bright shining stars.
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful Mother,
And he gave that dear mother to me.
