Wonderful Mother

God made a wonderful mother,

A mother who never grows old;

He made her smile of the sunshine.

And He moulded 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.


Dearest Mum

Memories unfold as we think of you,

A real mum, through and through.

You suffered in silence everyday,

An illness that would not go away.

But now you have no more pain

For God’s loving arms have healed you again.


The Broken Chain

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name,

In life we loved you dearly; in death we do the same

It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone.

For part of us went with you, the day God called you home

You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide,

And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side

Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,

But as God call us one by one, the chain will link again.


Mother In Heaven

If roses grow in Heaven, Lord,

Please pick a bunch for me.

Place them in my Mother’s arms

And tell her they’re from me.

Tell her that I love and miss her,

And when she turns to smile,

Place a kiss upon her cheek,

And hold her for a while.

Because remembering her is easy,

I do it everyday,

But there’s an ache within my heart

That will never go away.



I cannot say and I will not say

That she is dead, she is just away.

With a cheery smile and a wave of hand

She has wandered into an unknown land;

And left us dreaming how very fair

Its needs must be, since she lingers there.

And you-oh you, who the wildest yearn

From the old-time step and the glad return-

Think of her faring on, as dear

In the love of there, as the love of here

Think of her still the same way, I say;

She is not dead, she is just away.


Irish Funeral Prayer

You can only have one mother

Patient kind and true;

No other friend in all the world,

Will be the same to you.

When other friends forsake you,

To mother you will return,

For all her loving kindness,

She asks nothing in return.

As we look upon her picture,

Sweet memories we recall,

Of a face so full of sunshine,

And a smile for one and all.

Sweet Jesus, take this message,

To our dear mother up above;

Tell her how we miss her,

And give her all our love.
