A Mother's Worth

Who can tell a mother’s worth? Who knows the wealth of such? What do children know from birth? Their mother’s blessed touch. Who can tell a mother’s worth? Who knows the gains thereof? What exceeds the wealth of earth Like mother’s boundless love? Who can tell a mother’s worth? Who can count her gifts? What on earth brings greater mirth Than mother’s tender kiss? Who can tell a mother’s worth? Who gives her ample praise? What gift can any give on earth That begins to show “repaid”? Who can tell a mother’s worth? All of heaven knows and sees… The height, and depth and girth, Of the love He has for these.
