Special Mother's Day Message

In normal times, our Children's Choir and the joyful sounds they make brighten our worship service on Mother's Day. For today, the O'Neill, Derr, and Maloney families have recorded a special children's anthem. May it lift your spirits as they lift their voices!


PRAISE HIM by Meg Baker


Refrain: Praise Him for gardens in the rain,

For sun-kissed flowers of the spring.

Praise the Lord with all that is in you;

Lift up your voice and sing!


Every wave of the ocean, 

Every whisper of the wind,

Every color in the sunset

Should remind us of Him. (Refrain)

 

Trees to climb,

Hills to roll down,

Fireflies to catch and set free!  (Refrain)


Every rainbow in the heavens,

Every mother’s kiss goodnight,

Every breath we take is given

  By His everlasting light. (Refrain)
