    Mother, I Love You

    Sweetly

    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
