1. O blessèd day of motherhood!
We lift our hearts in praise,
To thank the Source of every good:
Thy joy crowns all our days.
O God, our Father, bless this day,
Enrich its golden store
Of blessèd mother love, and may
Thy children Thee adore.

2. O gracious day of motherhood!
Our faith, by God increased,
Hath each alluring foe withstood;
Our souls He hath released.
O God, our Father, bless this day,
Enrich its golden store
Of gracious mother love, and may
Thy children Thee adore.

3. O precious day of motherhood!
Teach us in Christ to find
The greater gifts of brotherhood;
Bring peace to all mankind.
O God, our Father, bless this day,
Enrich its golden store
Of precious mother love, and may
Thy children Thee adore.

4. O wondrous day of motherhood!
Thy love to all abound;
Beside the cross once Mary stood;
Again let love be crowned.
O God, our Father, bless this day,
Enrich its golden store
Of wondrous mother love, and may
Thy children Thee adore.
