A Wonderful Mother by Pat O'Reilly
GOD made a wonderful Mother
A Mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine.
And He molded her heart of pure gold.
In her eyes, He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks, fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful Mother,
And He gave that dear Mother to me.
