A Haven in the Storms of Life
A Mother's Love is like an island
In life's ocean vast and wide,
A peaceful, quiet shelter;
From the restless, rising tide.
A Mother's Love is like a fortress
And we seek protection there
when the waves of tribulation
Seem to drown us in despair
A Mother's Love is a sanctuary
Where our souls can find sweet rest
From the struggle and the tension
Of life's fast and futile quest
A Mother's Love is like a tower
Rising far above the crowd;
And her smile is the sunshine
Breaking through a threatening cloud;
A Mother's Love is like a beacon,
Burning bright with faith and prayer
And through the changing scenes of life
We can find a Haven there.
For a Mother's Love is fashioned
After God's enduring love,
It is endless and unfailing
Like the love of Him above.
For God knew in His great wisdom
That he couldn't be everywhere,
So he put His little Children
In a loving mother's care.
