Oh, faithful mother, please do not despair,
In God's perfect plan you do have a share,
To fulfill your destiny planned from creation
Which is to nurture children and build a nation!
You're walking in the footsteps of Jesus your Lord
Who sacrificed all, His life He out-poured,
He didn't cling to His rights with selfish futility,
He didn't claim any privilege, but walked in humility.
He gave up His life to save millions of others.
This principle works in the lives of all mothers.
When you lose your own life, you'll find it again,
A rewarding life, without guilt or shame.
So lift up your head, embrace your calling so high,
You're in God's perfect will; there's no reason to sigh!
You may often feel worthless ~ don't listen to this lie;
Your influence goes higher than the clouds in the sky!
