A MOTHER’S PRAYER

Lord, I am satisfied tonight to be
A mother, in a world gone mad with hate;
Here in this hour of earth’s agony,
I do not ask that I might do some great
Magnificent achievement, bringing fame;
I do not covet larger fields to roam;
I only want to keep alight the flame
Of God’s love, shining from a Christian home.
I thank Thee for the children, if the way
Should lead to heartbreak grant me courage, Lord.
I will remember that there was a day
Thy mother’s heart was pierced, too, by the sword;
Thy grace will be sufficient now — as then.
I am glad to be a mother, Lord — Amen.
(Composer unknown)
