My name in Mothers Prayer

Twas in the days of careless youth, when life was fair and bright,
And neer a tear, and scarce a fear oercast 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 mothers prayer.

I thought but little of it then, tho revrence touched my heart,
To her whose love sought from above for me the better part;
But when lifes sterner battles came with many a subtle snare,
Oft that one word, in thought I heard my name in mothers prayer.

I wandered on, and heeded not, Gods 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 memry spoke my name in mothers prayer.

That pleading heart, that soul so tried, has gone into her rest,
But still with me for aye shall be the memry of her trust.
And when I cross the Jordans tide, and meet her over there,
Well praise the Lord, Who blessed that word, my name in mothers prayer.
