63 Beautiful Hymns for Mother’s Day Church Services

Mother’s Day is a special occasion that should be celebrated in church. The Bible clearly states that we should honor our fathers and mothers, so we should have something special for our Mother’s Day service. One way to make Mother’s Day different is to have a special hymn. Hymns for Mother’s Day can be a special way to observe this special day. 

Having a Mother’s Day song is a great idea for Mother’s Day church services. Many moms will be brought back to their times singing hymns as a child and will feel happy that their families are singing the hymns with them. Mother’s Day songs are a great way to honor mothers on Mother’s Day. 

Your special service should include some good hymns that mothers will love. Mother’s Day worship songs are a meaningful way to honor the mothers of the congregation and to recognize all the sacrifices they have made to raise children. 

Choosing hymns for Mother’s Day can be a difficult task though. Here are some hymns for Mother’s Day that will be great! 

The Top 5 Hymns for Mother’s Day

  1. I’ll Trust In Thee

In, I’ll Trust in Thee, we are reminded the God provides for us. The reminder of God’s provision should also be a recognition the our mothers are a provision from God. God blesses us with mothers to take care of us. 

The song sings, “I’m not outside thy providential care, I’ll trust in thee!” This portion also reminds the singers that we should trust our mother’s guidance. I’ll Trust In Thee is a beautiful song that can be sung as a hymn for Mother’s Day. 

  1. O My Father

O My Father is another fantastic hymn. Although it is referencing God as a Father, this song reminds us of parental figures in our lives. Mother’s Day is about remembering what moms do for us, so it is suiting to have a song that recognizes the importance of parental figures. 

  1. He Keeps My Soul

He Keeps My Soul is another good song for Mother’s Day. The song sings, “He Keeps my soul from ev’ry evil” Again, we are singing about God here, but it might remind us of the protection that our mothers give us. They try to keep us from ev’ry wrong. They shield us from the harsh realities of life. 

  1. All Creatures of Our God and King 
  2. For the Beauty of the Earth

HYMNS 6-10

  1.  Each Life that Touches Ours for Good
  2. Sing Praise to Him
  3. Now Thank We All Our God 

Now Thank We All Our God is another hymn that helps us to remember our Mother’s love. It says, “Now thank we all our God with heart and hands and voices, who wondrous things has done, in whom his world rejoices; who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way”

It mentions our Mother’s arms, which helps us to remember the nurturing nature of our mothers. Now Thank We All Our God is one of the best hymns for Mother’s Day.

  1. Jesus Saviour Pilot Me
  2. Faith of Our Mothers

Faith of Our Mothers might be the best hymns for Mother’s Day. It speaks directly about the guidance that a Mother’s faith can bring to our lives. 

It says, “Faith of our mothers, guiding faith, For youthful longing, youthful doubt.” This section reminds us that while we are young, our mothers guide our decisions. 

It also says, “Faith of our mothers, loving faith, Fount of our childhood’s trust and grace.” Mothers shape our ability to trust and have grace in people, but when a mother has faith guiding those aspects, it goes to a whole nother level. 

The song continues, “Faith of our mothers, Christian faith, In truth beyond our stumbling creeds.” A mother’s faith is authentic because it is not about the things they say. It is about the things that they do. It is faith in action.

Another line from the song says, “Source of a finer, nobler race; Faith of our mothers, loving faith.” Again, we are reminded that our mother’s faith guides us to becoming the best possible version of ourselves.

Faith of Our Mothers might be one of the best hymns to celebrate mothers on Mother’s Day. 

Hymns 11-24

  1. My Mothers Love

My Mother’s Love is another great hymn for Mother’s Day. It reminds us of the mother’s heart. Specifically, it helps us to recognize the blessing of our mother’s love. 

  1. Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou My Vision should also be considered for Mother’s Day. It says, “Thou my best thought, by day or by night Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.” The song is talking about God again, but it might remind people how God used their mother to guide them through difficult times. The comfort of a mother is an important part of God’s plan, and this song helps to remind us of that.
