A firm resolve that never could be swayed,
A faithful heart, a steadfast, patient love;
A mortal signpost pointing toward the way
Of faithfulness like that of God above.
Compassion gives its strength to all her days;
A fond affection fills her every deed,
As she, with godly pity in her ways,
Surrenders of herself for other's needs.
Her wisdom is the fruit of well lived years;
The words upon her lips are wisest truth.
And with a softly spoken word she steers
The foolish child, and guides the wayward youth.
Why celebrate just one among all days?
One day could not suffice to sing her praise.
