Mothers Day Songs

Songs of Gratitude: Mother’s Day Picks for Worship

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we know how important it is to honor and celebrate all the wonderful moms in our church community. Choosing the perfect songs to capture the love and gratitude we feel towards these amazing women can be a bit of a challenge as praise and worship songs typically don’t reference “mom” specifically, but fear not – we’ve got you covered! We’ve put together a list of favorites that are sure to tug at heartstrings and make this special day even more memorable for everyone.

The Blessing by Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes, and Elevation Worship: This song can be a prayer of blessing over our mothers, who have shown us God’s favor and protection throughout our lives. It also honors their legacy of faith and their impact on the world. “May His favor be upon you/And a thousand generations/And your family and your children/And their children and their children/May His presence go before you/And behind you and beside you/All around you and within you/He is with you He is with you.”

No Longer Slaves by Bethel Music: This song is a declaration of our freedom from fear and bondage, through the blood of Jesus Christ that made us children of God, which our mothers have prayed for and celebrated with us. It also testifies to the power of God’s love that breaks every chain and delivers us from every enemy. “From my mother’s womb/You have chosen me/Love has called my name/I’ve been born again into Your family/Your blood flows through my veins/I’m no longer a slave to fear/I am a child of God.”

Find You On My Knees by Kari Jobe: “In the place I least expect / Finding treasures in the trials on my knees”. Kari Jobe sings about finding strength and solace in prayer during difficult times. This theme can be connected to a mother’s constant presence and support for her family through her own faith and prayers.

A Mother’s Prayer by Celine Don is a heartwarming adaptation of the popular song “The Prayer” with new lyrics by CCM artist Kathy Troccoli.  This beautiful ballad captures the depth of a mother’s love, hopes, and dreams for her child as she seeks God’s guidance and protection.


Essential reading for worship leaders since 2002.
