Religious Poems for Moms
For my Beloved Mom...
"I know that I'm getting the real deal with my
I know that she's telling it like it is.
She's proud of me
when I've earned it
and she's disappointed in me when I've earn
She's really my spectrum on where I am as a person."
- Lara Flynn Boyle
10. To My Mother - Edgar Allen Poe
Classic literature you can keep in whole for a mom-in-law, or adapt for your own mom.
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.
11. Mothers are Forever – Julie L. McCarty
No matter how many years have passed, your mother still looks over you.
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.
12. God's Masterpiece is Mother - Herbert Farnham
God took pieces of everything wonderful to make moms.
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.
13. Mothers - Calvin M. Lake
Recognizing all the little things that seem to go unnoticed.
A mother's love, a Mother's care,
A mother's sigh, a Mother's prayer
A Mother's work, and Mother's day,
Leaves little time for any play.
14. Thank God for Mother's Love – Anonymous
A mother's patience of a saint could only be by the hand of God.
There is no love, like a mother's love,
no stronger bond on earth...
like the precious bond that comes from God,
to a mother, when she gives birth.
A mother's love is forever strong,
never changing for all time...
and when her children need her most,
a mother's love will shine.
God bless these special mothers,
God bless them every one...
for all the tears and heartache,
and for the special work they've done.
When her days on earth are over,
a mother's love lives on...
through many generations,
with God's blessings on each one.
Be thankful for our mothers,
for they love with a higher love...
from the power God has given,
and the strength from up above.
15. My Angel - Breana D. Greathouse
An angel came from heaven, and that angel is your mom.
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.
16. I Said a Mother's Prayer for You – Anonymous
Telling mom about all the times you thanked God she exists.
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!
17. Christian mother's day poem - Joanna Fuchs
Because you look up to mom for her undying devotion and faith.
My mother is a Christian,
In every important way;
The fruit of the Holy Spirit
Is displayed in her every day.
18. When you thought I wasn't looking – Anonymous
All the things she taught you, just by being an excellent example.
When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator,
and I wanted to paint another one.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you feed a stray cat,
and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make my favorite cake for me,
and I knew that little things are special things.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I heard you say a prayer,
and I believed there is a God I could always talk to.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I felt you kiss me goodnight,
and I felt loved.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come from your eyes,
and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it's all right to cry.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw that you cared
and I wanted to be everything that I could be.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked...
and wanted to say thanks for all the things
I saw when you thought I wasn't looking.
19. Wonderful Mother - Pat O'Reilly
God made such a wonderful person, and you get to call her mom.
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.
Mom is the proof God exists.
A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.
21. Mother's Love - Michael Olakunle Adesanya
For the mom that has truly been there through even the toughest times.
There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappointments
And calm all of our fears.
22. God's Gift – Anonymous
A mother like no other, Created especially for you.
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.
23. His Mother - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
A biblical reference to convey your undying love for mom.
Even He that died for us upon the cross, in the last hour, in the unutterable agony of death, was mindful of His mother, as if to teach us that this holy love should be our last worldly thought - the last point of earth from which the soul should take its flight for heaven.
