My Mothers Prayer
I never can forget the day
I heard my mother kindly say,
Youre leaving now my tender care;
Remember, child, your mothers prayer.
Wheneer I think of her so dear,
I feel her angel spirit near;
A voice comes floating on the air,
Reminding me of Mothers prayer.
I never can forget the voice
That always made my heart rejoice;
Though I have wandered God knows where,
Still I remember Mothers prayer.
Though years have gone, I cant forget
Those words of loveI 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 Saviors cleansing powr.
My sin and guilt be canceled there,
Twas there He answered Mothers prayer.
O praise the Lord for saving grace!
Well meet up yonder face to face;
The home above together share,
In answer to my mothers prayer.
