Mother, I Love You


Mother, I Love You


1. Mother*, I love you; mother, I do.

Father in Heaven has sent me to you.

When I am near you, I love to hear you

Singing so softly that you love me too.

2. Mother, I love you; mother, I do.

I want to help you because I love you.

I want to mind you; I want to find you

Happy and smiling because I love you.

Mother, I love you; I love you, I do.

*Alternate word: daddy
