My name in Mothers Prayer
íTwas in the days of careless youth, when life was fair and bright,
And neíer a tear, and scarce a fear oíercast my day and night,
As, in the quiet eventide, I passed her kneeling there,
That just one word, my name, I heard my name in motherís prayer.
I thought but little of it then, thoí revírence touched my heart,
To her whose love sought from above for me the better part;
But when lifeís sterner battles came with many a subtle snare,
Oft that one word, in thought I heard my name in motherís prayer.
I wandered on, and heeded not, Godís oft repeated call
To turn from sin, to live for Him, and trust to Him my all;
But when at last, convinced of sin, I sank in deep despair,
My hope awoke, when memíry spoke my name in motherís prayer.
That pleading heart, that soul so tried, has gone into her rest,
But still with me for aye shall be the memíry of her trust.
And when I cross the Jordanís tide, and meet her over there,
Weíll praise the Lord, Who blessed that word, my name in motherís prayer.
