Best Christian Mother’s Day Poems for Church

Best Mother's Day Poems for Church

1. To My Mother – Edgar Allen Poe

“Because I feel that in the heavens above

The angels, whispering one to another,

Can find among their burning terms of love,

None so devotional as that of “Mother,”

Therefore by that dear name I have long called you,

You who are more than mother unto me,

And filled my heart of hearts, where death installed you,

In setting my Virginia’s spirit free.

My mother — my own mother, who died early,

Was but the mother of myself; but you

Are the mother to the one I loved so dearly,

And thus are dearer than the mother I knew

But that infinity with which my wife

Was dearer to my soul that its soul-life.”

What an amazing moving ode to the love of a mother! The term “Mother” is given the highest honor by Poe because of the extraordinary importance he places on it. Although he pays tribute to his mother, who died at a young age, he also has a soft spot for another maternal figure whom he learned to love more than his own life. 

2. My Angel – Breana D. Greathouse

“My angel is a woman who walks upon the earth,

she shows me my potential and all that I am worth.

When I am sick she heals me and makes me feel all-better,

and makes sure that in times of need that we are all together.

When we get into all kinds of fusses in our life,

my angel comes out strong as a mother and a wife.

My angel has raised me to be good and kind,

and makes sure that I have a strong and intelligent mind,

my angel is my guardian. my teacher and my friend, but most of all my mother til the very end.”

“My Angel” by Breana D. Greathouse is a poem about a special person who’s like an angel to the speaker. This is described as strong and loving, playing the roles of both a mother and a wife. This angel has taught the speaker to be kind and smart, and they’re seen as a guardian and a friend. 

3. God’s Gift – Anonymous

“My Mother is a special gift,

A special gift that God gave to me.

I’d be lost and lonely without her,

If God took her away you see.

I love her so very much,

That I couldn’t bear to live without her healing touch.

Thank-you God for giving me such a loving Mother,

For I wouldn’t want to be a part of no other.”

Another beautiful poem, “God’s Gift” is a moving tribute to the gift of a mother’s love. The mother is portrayed as a priceless blessing from God, without whom the narrator would experience profound loneliness and disorientation. 

4. Wonderful Mother – Pat O’Reilly

“God made a wonderful mother,

A mother who never grows old;

He made her smile of the sunshine.

And He molded 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.”

A mother figure is praised in this poem for her enduring beauty and affection. She is praised for her inner and exterior beauty, with stars compared to her eyes and delicate flowers to her cheeks. God is thanked at the poem’s end for making a mother as good as her. 

5. I Said a Mother’s Prayer for You – Anonymous

“I said a Mother’s Day prayer for you

to thank the Lord above

for blessing me with a lifetime

of your tenderhearted love.

I thanked God for the caring

you’ve shown me through the years,

for the closeness we’ve enjoyed

in time of laughter and of tears.

And so, I thank you from the heart

for all you’ve done for me

and I bless the Lord for giving me

the best mother there could be!”

6. God’s Masterpiece is Mother – Herbert Farnham

“God took the fragrance of a flower…

The majesty of a tree…

The gentleness of morning dew…

The calm of a quiet sea…

The beauty of the twilight hour…

The soul of a starry night…

The laughter of a rippling brook…

The grace of a bird in flight…

Then God fashioned from these things

A creation like no other,

And when his masterpiece was through

He called it simply – Mother.”

This a beautiful poem that shows how much we love and admire mothers. It compares them to the best things in nature, like flowers, trees, and the sea. The poet says that mothers have all the good qualities of these natural wonders. 

7. God’s Helpers – George W. Wiseman

“God could not be in every place

With loving hands to help erase

The teardrops from each baby’s face,

And so He thought of mother.

He could not send us here alone

And leave us to a fate unknown;

Without providing for His own,

The outstretched arms of mother….”

God can’t be everywhere to comfort us. He gave us mothers to help us through hard times. The poem paints a picture of mothers wiping away tears from their children’s faces, showing their love and care. It also says that mothers are like God’s helpers here on Earth, always there to guide and support us.

8. Two Religions – Aquilla Webb

“A woman sat by a hearthside place

Reading a book with a pleasant face,

Till a child came up with a childish frown

And pushed the book saying, “Put it down.”

Then the mother, slapping his curly head,

Said, “Troublesome child, go off to bed;

A great deal of God’s book I must know

To train you up as a child should go.”

And the child went off to bed to cry

And denounce religion—by and by….”

Despite her child’s demands, a woman puts her religious studies first. The mother scolds her kid for interfering and stresses the significance of religious instruction. The child’s unpleasant reaction, however, highlights the fallout of strict religious enforcement. It is important to balance religious beliefs and empathy within the family, as the poem reminds us.

9. To Mother – Thomas W. Fessenden

“You painted no Madonnas

On chapel walls in Rome,

But with a touch diviner

You lived one in your home.

You wrote no lofty poems

That critics counted art,

But with a nobler vision

You lived them in your heart…..”

An emotional ode to the character and love of a mother, “To Mother” is a touching tribute to mothers. The poem talks about how the impact of a mother at home is just as powerful as famous paintings or great poetry. Even though she doesn’t become famous like those artworks, her presence makes her home feel special, almost like a holy place.

10. Mothers are Forever – Julie L. McCarty

“Before the child is born,

Anxious prayers ascend to heaven,

The young mother depends on God,

To nurture the life she’s been given.

When the mother hears the first cry,

The tiny child claims her heart,

A bond that cannot be broken,

Deep passionate love from the start…”

The mother’s dependence on God is first demonstrated when she prays before the baby is born. An overwhelming sense of love and devotion washes over a mother the moment her newborn child makes their first sound. The poem’s central theme is that this love is powerful and unending. That’s heartwarming to honor the unique relationship between moms and their kids.
