It is first and foremost a tribute to the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is also the sentiment I think we all deep down inside have for our own maternal parent, whether known or unknown, living or deceased. On this day to honor Mom, in the month which honors the ultimate Mom, a hymn to express what we sometimes cannot.
On this day, O beautiful Mother,
On this day we give thee our love.
Near thee, Madonna, fondly we hover,
Trusting thy gentle care to prove.
On this day we ask to share,
Dearest Mother, thy sweet care.
Aid us ere our feet astray
Wander from they guiding way.
Queen of angels, deign to hear
Lisping children's humble pray'r,
Young hearts gain, O virgin pure,
Sweetly to thyself allure.
Happy Mother's Day!
