A “Motherless” Generation

There is a paramount need

That Christ does surely see

A many without a home

Who suffer life alone.

But centuries long ago

Deborah, a mother, arose

To tend the needy hearts

Of Israels little flock.

Where now are Mothers indeed

For today is a great great need

For the older women now to rise

And protect well the young in sight.

For Christ had set in place

Women with mercy and grace

To love the hurt and shamed

We have a motherless generation today.

A cry goes from the throne

Dare not silence Christ’s own

For they are sent to teach

The sons and daughters of Thee.

If spiritual mothers resist

For fear of persecuting men

Then many will lose their way

For mothers are needed today.

For in His image are made

The Sarah’s and Hannah’s  that pray

Who share life’s painful ways

The sons too need spiritual mothers today.

Oh Fathers indeed are in need

Please do not misunderstand me

But the tenderness mothers portray Are needed for sons and daughters today.

Think back of Paul’s precious praise

For Timothy’s mother and grandmother’s ways

For raising him in Gods sweet grace

There’s Timothy’s without today.

Oh Mothers of Israel Arise!

The sons and daughters do cry!

In need of spiritual eyes

To walk with them thru life!

For they are the next sweet breed

Who Christ is raising indeed

Yet Satan has laid his plan

Of a motherless generation for man.

2 Timothy 1:5

I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.

Judges 5:7

The villagers ceased in Israel; they ceased to be until I arose; I, Deborah, arose as a mother in Israel.
