Bethany and two of her friends sang the special at our services today. They sang it in English but then we translated it for all the other mothers afterward that way they too could understand the words. The piano you hear is also Bethany playing she recorded it before hand then we just played it for the service. She said it was too hard to play and sing alto. The song is by Ron Hamilton and is a song he wrote for his mother. Although not a new song it was the first time we had heard the song. I am also including the lyrics here so that you can follow along as the girls sing it. It is a beautiful tribute to our mothers and the godly heritage that many of them bring to us.

Before the Lord created me He planned my life with you,
And He prepared you specially for all that you would do.
Then Jesus chose the best for me and sent me to your side,
So I could see His life in you and you could be my guide.

You were there to teach me of Jesus before I understood,
You were there to tenderly love me when I thought nobody could.
You were there to comfort and hold me close when my days were filled with pain.
I have seen God above through a mother’s love,
All because you were there, all because you were there.

Although I’m growing older now, I love you more and more.
In you I see my Savior’s love as I never have before.
And though the years are passing by, your beauty only grows.
The many ways you touch my life, the creator only knows.

You were there to teach me of Jesus before I understood,
You were there to tenderly love me when I thought nobody could.
You were there to comfort and hold me close when my days were filled with pain.
I have seen God above through a mother’s love,
All because you were there, all because you were there.
