WHY DO I BELIEVE IN GOD?--MY MOTHER'S UNDYING LOVE
By James M. Becher
I've never seen the red sea part
Or gathered manna from above,
Nor watched a dead man's life re-start
But, I've known the miracle of a mother's undying love.
She gave me everything she had,
And wished to give me more.
She gave herself to meet my needs
And never once got sore.
She tried to teach to me the right
And lead me in His way;
And prayed for me with heartfelt tears
The times I went astray.
O' now I know my God is real.
Christ lives within my heart.
But it was my mother's faithful love
Which gave this faith it's start.
So tell me that there is no God.
I'll ask you very plain:
From what other source 'tis possible
My mother's dear love came?
