Mother Dear

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Lovingly

1. Mother dear, I love you so.

Your happy, smiling face

Is such a joy to look at;

It makes home a lovely place.

2. Mother dear, I love you so.

Your lovely, shining eyes

Are just like stars that twinkle

Way up in the bright blue skies.

3. Mother dear, I love you so.

I’ll try the whole day through

To please our Heav’nly Father.

I’m so glad he gave me you.
