Father God,

May Your presence be felt, may Your Spirit be near, may Your strong hands uphold us, and take away fear

Be unto us like the mother we had, and shelter us under Your wings like our dad

Our mighty protector, provider, You are, so loving and tender, You’re our guiding star

We know that she’s now in a much better place, she’s singing and dancing, and her eyes see Your face

Our mom’s just a picture of Your love for us, relentless, unfailing, she’s one that we trust

Now then we must be relying on You, believe what You say, and trust what You’ll do

You care for us more than our parents ‘ere could, help us to give You our lives like we should

Our future is Yours, to bring glory to You, Your plan is to use us and make us brand new

So touch all the lives around me today, may I love them enough and show them Your way

Like mom did for me, let me share with those, and point them to Jesus through this line of prose
