More noble than any other.
He entrusted me with children
And employed me as a mother.
I had no training in this field;
Nor was I ever certified.
I didn’t receive instructions;
So the Bible became my guide.
At first, we had a baby boy;
My calling I now had begun.
When next there was a little girl,
I found two are more work than one.
It was my joy to tend to them,
To watch over them carefully,
To protect them both from danger,
To take care of them prayerfully.
My husband was my strong support
In the things that I had to do.
He was the family leader,
While he cared for all of us, too.
I needed to stay vigilant,
To any hurtful condition,
For childcare is a year-round task,
Not a seasonal position.
To keep our children safe from harm,
Guarding life would my mission be.
Fearing water, never swimming,
A loving mother—Lifeguard Me!
