Mother ‘O Mine

If I were hanged on the highest hill,

Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

I know whose love would follow me still,

   Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

If I were drowned in the deepest sea,

Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

I know whose tears would come down to me,

Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

If I were damned of body and soul, 

I know whose prayers would make me whole,

   Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

  1. So very beautiful and so very true. A Mother never leaves… only God calling her Home could accomplish that. Thank You for this beautiful tribute.

  2. “….I know who’s prayers would make me whole.”

    Thanks to my two mother’s prayers a broken version of me became whole.

    Now that my two mom’s are together, I pray, allow me to say from my heart, Happy Mothers Day. Joan and the Blessed Virgin Mary. What a triumphant combination.

    To all the mother’s praying for their children. Never give up! Keep at it.
    Your prayers will be answered for the conversion of your sons and daughters.
    Trust in God.

  3. “To our Lady.
    Lovely Lady dressed in blue –
    Teach me how to pray!
    God was just your little boy,
    Tell me what to say!
    […]
    Amen.”

    As nearly as anything in this fallen World, mother’s love comes closest to God’s eternal, unconditional love.
