'Mother-in-law' they say, and yet, 
Somehow I simply can't forget 
'Twas you who watched his baby ways 
Who taught him his first hymn of praise,

Who smiled on him with loving pride 
When he first toddled by your side. 
'Mother-in-law' but oh, 'twas you 
Who taught him to be kind and true,

When he was tired, almost asleep, 
'Twas to your arms he used to creep; 
And when he bruised his tiny knee, 
'Twas you who kissed it tenderly.

'Mother-in-law' they say, and yet, 
Somehow I never shall forget 
How very much I owe To you,
who taught him how to grow.

You trained your son to look above, 
You made of him the man I love; 
And so I think of that today, 
And then with thankful heart I'll say

OUR MOTHER
