Christian Poem For Mother's Day

Updated on April 20, 2014

Mother's Day is one of my favorite times of the year. It's a time when we get to show extra appreciation to that special woman or women in our lives. She may be a mother, grandmother, aunt, adoptive parent, or just a super special woman who has been a mother figure to you for a short time or throughout your whole life. There are many gifts you can choose from but a lasting gift that never wears out is the gift of poetry. Here are a couple of great christian poems for Mother's Day.


"Strength and honor are her clothing;

She shall rejoice in time to come.

She opens her mouth with wisdom,

And on her tongue is the law of kindness.

She watches over the ways of her household,

And does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children rise up and call her blessed;

Her husband also, and he praises her:

"Many daughters have done well,

But you excell them all."

Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,

But a woman who fears the Lord,

She shall be praised.

Give her of the fruit of her hands,

And let her own works praise her in the gates.

Proverbs 31:25~31

Easy To Memorize

From the time when I was a child, I participated in many Mother's Day programs. I have learned various poems and read numerous readings to salute a mother. Here are the words to a fimilar old religious tune. This is another great christian poem for Mother's Day. This was easily memorized and recited in many a Mother's Day programs. The rhyming of the last words in every sentence makes this bit of poetry sound so soothing to the ear. The words are so fitting to express ones love for a loving mother.


O mother's love, sweet mothers love,

The gift devine from heav'n above,

It lifts our thoughts to realms of light

And bids us see the good and right;

God knew the need of humankind,

The depths of sin our souls might find,

And so to keep us pure and fair,

We have a mother's love and pray'r.

O mother's love, the sweetest known,

The richest earthly gift we own,

For it our thanks shall clearly wing

To reach the throne of God, our King;

Our praise shall seek the Lord of pow'r

For blessing known this festal hour;

Ah, far above all gifts devine,

The love opf mothers brightly shine.

O mother's love, so blest and true,

That guides and keeps our lifetime through:

Through sacrifice and service dear,

Its depth and sweetness shine more clear:

It is to us a precious gift

That lives to bless and bends to lift;

With lifted hearts we send above

Our gratitude for mother's love.

Tune - "Sweet Hour Of Prayer"

Another Favorite


Her love is like an island

In life's ocean, vast and wide,

A peaceful, quiet shelter

From the wind, and rain and tide.

'Tis bound on the north by Hope,

By Patience on the west,

By tender Counsel on the south,

And on the east by Rest

Above it like a beacon light

Shine faith, and truth, and prayer;

And through the changing scenes of life,

I find a haven there.
