It's the Feast of the Assumption today and fittingly we sang this song
at Mass today. A beautiful song to a beautiful Spirit being a signpost
to her Son.

My Mother had this hymn sung at her mother's funeral, the day before Mother's Day, 1983. The soloist who sang it for us is now deceased and the church is no longer in existence. I was at a loss as to where to look for the lyrics. You see, my Mother who is 88 is leaving us for home very soon after being on hospice over a year. It's 2:30 AM and I was brought to my computer to seek these lyrics. I have finally found them. I can even hear the soloist, her voice cracking with emotion.Thank you so much.

Years ago, when I was in High School, I played the flute with my church "Guitar Choir" (2 guitars, a banjo, a piano, 6-8 choir members and me). They would have me play through half this song as a flute solo before everyone joined in. it is a beautiful song and I always loved it. I had forgotten some of the lyrics and wanted to remember; the internet is so great for this sort of thing. Thank you all for sharing.

I used to sing this in school but the lyrics were different.
Gentle woman, guidling light,
Morning star so strong and bright,
Gentle mother, peaceful dove,
Teach us wisdom, teach us love

You were chosen by the Father
You were chosen for the Son
You were chosen among women
You were chosen to be the one

Gentle Mother, Peaceful Dove
Teach us wisdom, teach us love

"Love me? Love my son" God.
"Love me? Love my mother" Jesus.
"Love me? Love my Son" Mary.
"Love me? Love my Father."
This my dear friends is the circle of life and LOVE.

I can't stand this song. The timing is goofy and no one knows when to hold the notes or start up again.

Pardon me. I should have written, I can't stand to sing this song in church because it is hard for a group to sing it. I am sure some people like it sung by individuals.

My sisters and I chose this song for my mother's funeral Mass on 03/14/2015. It is so beautiful and it is the essence of my Momma. I broke down when we got to Gentle mother, peaceful dove, teach us wisdom, teach us love. My Momma was everything this song is about and she had a deep love and respect for Mary.
I thought I was doing pretty good until they sang this at Mass on Mother's Day. I totally lost it and could not stop crying. It was only after I could feel my Momma's presence with me and her holding me in her arms, that I was finally able to pull myself together. I miss her so much, it hurts.

Thank you to all who posted the lyrics. The song made me cry in high school. The Mother made me cry in therapy in my 30’s. The song is calling my heart again, but I couldn’t recall all the words. My heart is full.
