10580. I Thought Of You, Mother

1 I thought of you, mother, when tempted to stray,
When far from my Savior I wandered away;
In all the rough places it kept my life true,
Because of your message, "I’m praying for you!"

Refrain:
I thought of you, mother, I thought of you, mother,
The love never failing, that followed your son;
I thought of you, mother, I thought of you, mother,
My soul for the Savior your pure life has won.

2 I thought of you, mother, tho’ long I have trod
The pathway that led me from home and from God;
Your trust never failing, your wonderful love,
Are guiding my footsteps to Jesus above. [Refrain]

3 I thought of you, mother—no more will I roam;
The angels are shouting,"A sinner’s come home!"
When safe I am standing at Heaven’s bright goal,
I’ll look for the mother whose faith saved my soul. [Refrain]
