Mothers Rarely Get What They Deserve

Music: Wann ich des Morgens frueh aufstheh'.
By Ludwig Senfl.
Sequenced by Curtis Clark at The Internet Renaissance Band.

Mothers rarely get what they deserve:
On them is dumped the dirt of our dreams.
Their joys must be ours, as they serve
Hard time, which only our love redeems.
Each day your love and faith my days renew;
Rejoice, then, on this day reserved for you.
