"That needle poking to and fro, Means so much more than you may know.
Each snap, each button, each shirt, each dress, contains something you'll never guess.
Each garment Mom makes, from the start, contains a small piece of her heart.
With every snip she adds her love, and whispers a prayer to God above.
Dear Father, bless the one who wears this, protect and guide them with Your kindness.
Give them strength from day to day. That from all sin they'll turn away.
Then into each and every seam. She presses in her fondest dream.
That each one in her family. Will join her in eternity.
So next time Mom makes you any clothes,
Know that, in it, her love shows.
It's more than just a thing to wear,
It's a symbol of Mom's loving care."
