Lyrics: The night is long, her husband strong, at last a newborn baby cries. <br/>She holds her near, this infant dear, and gazes deep into her eyes. <br/>The power of a mother's touch, To bring a tiny soul to earth. <br/>From heav'n above to mother's love, the hand of God is in a mother's touch. <br/> <br/>An autumn day, she skips away, A tear is in her mother's eye. <br/>Then turning back for one last look, the kindergartner waves goodbye. <br/>The wisdom of a mother's touch, to teach and child and help her grow. <br/>From heav'n above to mother's love, the hand of God is in a mother's touch. <br/> <br/>The hour is late, she's on a date, Oh how the years have quickly flown. <br/>Her mother waits and says a prayer for righteous choices on her own. <br/>The blessing of a mother's touch to plead for guidance from above. <br/>From heav'n above to mother's love, the hand of God is in a mother's touch. <br/> <br/>A golden band upon her hand, a fine young man is at her side. <br/>Her mother there to smooth her hair, and gently kiss the lovely bride. <br/>The wonder of a mother's touch, in holding close yet letting go. <br/>From heav'n above to mother's love, the hand of God is in a mother's touch. <br/> <br/>A mother's touch.
