A faithful mother

may I always be

May I live my faith

and always praise Thee


May my actions show

my trust and my love

in valleys and shadows

when life is just tough




May I always pray

for You to protect us

May I count my blessings

May I never fuss


May I teach my children

to hear and to see,

to understand Your word

and to never flee


May we be transformed

May our hearts be changed

May we be brave warriors

and not be ashamed


May I raise my children

to serve only You,

knowing deep in their heart

that Your love is true


May I understand

that they are really Yours

May I be blessed watching

how their faith endures
