Title: Their Mothers Knew It

Topic: stripling warriors, motherhood, courage, faith
The song of Helaman stood in defense
Of their families, faith, and land.
And though their involvement made little sense
These stripling sons did understand,
That God would preserve them all through the fight,
Striving with God and their brothers,
Preserving them through the enemy’s spite,
Blessed with faith’s shield from their mothers.
The sons of Helaman knew from their youth
Their mothers could face any foe.
These noble women nourished them with truth
Encouraged their faith’s seeds to grow.
They fought so others would not have to fight
And to preserve their liberty
They battled, filled with true and holy light
To defend sacred agency.
The sons of Helaman all did prevail
Because they acted on belief.
They didn’t know what the fight would entail
And it might have ended in grief.
Though all of them felt the sting of great pain,
They stood when the battle was through.
They drew the strength of truths pure and plain
With no doubt what their mothers knew.
