May Her Reward Be Great




May Her Reward Be Great

May her reward be great
Who once had sought to rate
But gave up all in trade to gain
Philippians 3:8.

May her reward be great
Who shunned the world’s sweet bait
And even saw the lie in fruit
Which other Christians ate.

May her reward be great
Who through the narrow gate
Did press and plead and pray for souls
And changed eternal fate.

May her reward be great
Who smell of sin did hate
And rang the anti-siren bell
To see her men sail straight.

May her reward be great
Who often stayed up late
With words for weary wanderers
Reflecting Jesus’ trait.

May her reward be great
Who trimmed her ship of freight
To sail more speedy to the prize
Which waits at heaven’s gate.

May her reward be great
Who on that joyous date
With all earth’s pains forever past
Finds in the Lamb her mate.

Mother’s Day, 2015
