Like as a Mother Comforteth
Like as a mother comforteth, O words of gentle worth. So will I comfort you, declares the Lord of all the earth. He bends in faithful watchfulness, He slumbers not nor sleeps; Above His trusting child the Lord
A constant vigil keeps. He patient is, as mothers are Who love their children well; Our faults and failings He forgives; His mercies, who can tell. Like as a mother grant, O God, This likeness e’er may be A
holy symbol to declare the love that wells in Thee.
