    Mother Dear

    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.
