There's no love sweeter than the love you feel,
No passion that's more passionate than yours,
No joy more beautiful, no grace more real,

No wonder more beyond both woe and weal,
No pleasure with a more abundant cause.
There's no love sweeter than the love you feel,

No laughter that would wounds more quickly heal,
No sunshine that would give more troubles pause,
No joy more beautiful, no grace more real.

For mother's love is like a sailboat's keel
That reaches deep to brace a bliss that soars.
There's no love sweeter than the love you feel,

No insight that would greater truths reveal,
No wisdom that would tender higher laws,
No joy more beautiful, no grace more real.

For your love is the love that turns the wheel,
And to each generation life restores.
There's no love sweeter than the love you feel,
No joy more beautiful, no grace more real.
