My Mothers Prayer
I never can forget the day
I heard my mother kindly say,
~ez_ldquo~You~ez_rsquo~re leaving now my tender care;
Remember, child, your mother~ez_rsquo~s prayer.~ez_rdquo~
Whene~ez_rsquo~er I think of her so dear,
I feel her angel spirit near;
A voice comes floating on the air,
Reminding me of Mother~ez_rsquo~s prayer.
I never can forget the voice
That always made my heart rejoice;
Though I have wandered God knows where,
Still I remember Mother~ez_rsquo~s prayer.
Though years have gone, I can~ez_rsquo~t forget
Those words of love~ez_mdash~I hear them yet;
I see her by the old arm chair,
My mother dear, in humble prayer.
I never can forget the hour
I felt the Savior~ez_rsquo~s cleansing pow~ez_rsquo~r.
My sin and guilt be canceled there,
~ez_rsquo~Twas there He answered Mother~ez_rsquo~s prayer.
O praise the Lord for saving grace!
We~ez_rsquo~ll meet up yonder face to face;
The home above together share,
In answer to my mother~ez_rsquo~s prayer.
