NO ONE LIKE MOTHER.


There is no earthly friend nor kin,
No, there is no other
Whom we can confidence put in,
Like mother.
Others may love you for a day,
Soon their love will fade away;
But a mother's love will last for aye.

Others, too, may faithless prove,
Even your father and brother;
But she, yes, she will always love,--
Your mother.
Aye! her heart is all aflame
With holy love each day the same,
And pure as crystal drops of rain.

No, there is no earthly friend,
No, no, not another!
Who will love you to the end,
Like mother.
She'll help you bear your trials and pains,
Rejoice with you 'midst your joys and gains;
Blest mother-love, it never wanes!
