A Song for Mothering Sunday

It's really tricky to find an appropriate song for Mothering Sunday. There are a few "Mary songs" in the catholic tradition and a number of issue based songs from the liberal wing, but not many praise songs that pick up some of the biblical images of a "mothering God". I've had a go at a second verse for "Father God" which I hope to try out on Sunday:
As a mother hen lifts
up her wings and draws
her chicks around her,
You are always there to hold us
safe within Your arms.
Your love for us is like the love
that mothers have for those they nurture.
You will not forget your people.
Loving God, You're always with us.

We will sing Your praises,
We will sing Your praises,
We will sing Your praises for evermore.
We will sing Your praises,
We will sing Your praises,
We will sing Your praises for evermore.
Not sure if I can get anyone to sing it but I'll give it a go.
