In Praise of the Love of a ParentWho questions the great love of a Parent
(whose love is here and present to the end
for caring and for giving to attend
to ev'ry child's welfare and contentment)?
A Parent's love is greater in extent
than infinite: it's a truth to commend,
a law (that one cannot break or transcend),—
a tenet of all life that's permanent.
A Parent's the one who watches and prays
for their child's safety and health all day long
so that they may grow up and thrive always
and become wise and may know right from wrong.
A Parent's love's by far the supreme love,
a child's right that God set up from above.
