Representative Text

1 I grieved my Lord from day to day,
I scorned His love so full and free,
And though I wandered far away,
My mother’s pray'rs have followed me.

I’m coming home, I’m coming home,
To live my wasted life anew,
For mother’s pray'rs have followed me,
Have followed me the whole world thro'.

2 O’er desert wild, o’er mountain high,
A wanderer I chose to be,
A wretched soul condemned to die,
Still mother’s pray'rs have followed me. [Refrain]

3 He turned my darkness into light,
This blessed Christ of Calvary,
I’ll praise His Name both day and night,
That mother’s pray'rs have followed me. [Refran]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
