Proverbs 31:25-28

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
Proverbs 31:25-28

Medium-length Christian Mothers Day Poems

These longer Christian Mother's day poems are full of warm wishes, appreciation for a mother's love, and blessings for your mother. They could work well in a card or note to your mom.

Wonderful Mother of Mine

I pray every night to our Father above,
For that wonderful mother of mine.
I ask Him to keep her as long as He can
That wonderful mother of mine.

There are treasures on earth,
That made life seem worthwhile,
But there's none can compare
To my mother's smile.
~ Clyde Hager

Wonderful Mother

God made a wonderful mother,
A mother kind yet bold,
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.
~ Pat O'Reilly

(Ed: The original second line of this poem is "A mother who never grows old", but I changed it because everyone grows old and surely that's part of God's plan)

A Mother's Love

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.

A Godly Mother with Godly love,
Is treasure from God above,
A Godly Mother with Godly care,
Has God's help when she sighs a prayer.
~ Calvin M Lake

Tribute to Mother

A picture memory brings to me;
I look across the years and see
Myself beside my mother's knee.
I feel her gentle hand restrain
My selfish moods, and know again
A child's blind sense of wrong and pain.
But wiser now, a man gray grown,
My childhood's needs are better known.
My mother's chastening love I own.
~ John Greenleaf Whittier

Longer Christian Mothers Day Poems

These Christian Mother's Day poems are a bit longer but they'll still just fit in a card if you keep your writing small. Or, try writing them out on a bookmark, so she can keep your love close whenever she opens her favorite book.

God's Masterpiece

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.
~ Herbert Farnham

Mothers Prayer (long version)

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!
~ Anon

Motherhood (long version)

The dearest gifts that heaven holds,
The very finest, too,
Were made into one pattern
That was perfect, sweet, and true;

The Angels smiled, well-pleased, and said:
"Compared to all the others,
This pattern is so wonderful
Let's use it just for Mothers!"

And through the years a mother has been
All that's sweet and good
For there's one bit of God and love,
In all true Motherhood.
~ Helen Steiner Rice

A Mother's Love (long version)

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappoints
And calm all of our fears.

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can share the joy we feel,
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help us on life's way,
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love,
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.
~ Anon

Her Love is Like an Island

Mother's love is like an island,
In life's ocean vast and wide
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, the rain, the tide.

'Tis bound on the north by Hope,
By Patience on the west,
By tender Counsel on the south
And on the east by Rest.

Above it like a beacon light
Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
And thro' the changing scenes of life
I find a haven there.
~ Anon

My Mother

Who sat and watched my infant head
When sleeping on my cradle bed,
And tears of sweet affection shed?
My Mother.

When pain and sickness made me cry,
Who gazed upon my heavy eye,
And wept for fear that I should die?
My Mother.

Who taught my infant lips to pray
And love God's holy book and day,
And walk in wisdom's pleasant way?
My Mother.

And can I ever cease to be
Affectionate and kind to thee,
Who wast so very kind to me,
My Mother?

Ah, no! the thought I cannot bear,
And if God please my life to spare
I hope I shall reward they care,
My Mother.

When thou art feeble, old and grey,
My healthy arm shall be thy stay,
And I will soothe thy pains away,
My Mother.
~ Ann Taylor

Thank God for Mother's Love

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.
~ Anon

God's Helpers

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 could not watch us night and day
And kneel beside our crib to pray,
Or kiss our little aches away;
And so He sent us mother.

And when our childhood days began,
He simply could not take command.
That's why He placed our tiny hand
Securely into mother's.

The days of youth slipped quickly by,
Life's sun rose higher in the sky.
Full grown were we, yet ever nigh
To love us still, was mother.

And when life's span of years shall end,
I know that God will gladly send,
To welcome home her child again,
That ever-faithful mother.
~ George W Wiseman
