No Other Work So Noble

by Edouard Frère 1864

Child Praying at Mother’s Knee

“Oh that God would give every mother a vision
of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her
when a babe is placed in her bosom to be nursed and trained!

Could she have but one glimpse
into the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity;
could she look into it’s soul to see its possibilities;
could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility
for the training of this child,
for the development of its life, and for its destiny,

She would see that in all God’s world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers,
and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her.”
