“A Mother’s Song” – By Hester Suthers

May 9, 2015


A Mother’s Song

My little unborn child, I carry you
Without your “yes” or “no” to life and light.
Would you consent, I wonder, to be born
If you could choose and know each grief, each plight
We all endure who walk the mortal road?
Would you consent to share the human load?
I think you would: you are so close, so close
These many months to one rejoicing heart.
You cannot help but feel how strong,
How sweet a joy can be, and long to claim your part
In such a heritage which life bestows,
To more than compensate for all the woes.
I know you would, for I can promise you
The wonder of the stars, the seas, the hills,
The miracle of love and comradeship:
The breathless sum of loveliness which fills
Our world. O small, new soul that looks towards birth,
I bring to you a good, a glorious earth.

(Hester Suthers)



We’ll be honouring all mothers and mothers in the Faith at our 8:30 and 10 a.m. Services on Mother’s Day, May 10. We’ll share reflections similar to the one quoted above. We’ll also watch a video, and have a Mother’s Day Litany, and hand out gifts from our Sunday School to each women present . Embedded below is the hymn “Now Thank We All Our God.” With its reminder that God has blessed us “from our mother’s arms,” it will be our Closing Hymn at both Services.
