Faith of Our Mothers

If your church is tired of replacing “Father” with “Mother” for “Faith of Our Mothers” on Mom’s special day, here are some brand new lyrics for the old, old song:

      Faith of our mothers, living yet,
      after church meetings, house-breaking pets,
      Car-pooling Little League, lessons at 2,
      None would get done if it weren’t for you.
      Faith of our mothers! Holy faith!
      We will be true to you always.

      Faith of our mothers, living still,
      in spite of doc’tring others while ill,
      Working long hours and dinner at 5,
      Only by God’s grace are they alive!
      Faith of our mothers! Holy faith!
      We will be true to you always.

      Faith of our mothers passed on to each
      child and grandchild, nephew and niece,
      Sharing their faith, their hope, and their love,
      Grant them your strength and peace from above.
      Faith of our mothers! Holy faith!
      We will be true to you always.

Happy Mother’s Day!
