My bet is that I Often Go Walking is most likely the TOP Mother’s Day Primary Songs pick from the Children’s Songbook. I was gauging other’s reactions and which songs they were picking this year and I was a little surprised how frequently this song is mentioned! You can easily teach it for the first time using my I Often Go Walking flip charts below!

I often go walking in meadows of clover,
And I gather armfuls of blossoms of blue.
I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over;
Dear mother, all flowers remind me of you.
O mother, I give you my love with each flower
To give forth sweet fragrance a whole lifetime through;
For if I love blossoms and meadows and walking,
I learn how to love them, dear mother, from you.
