Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

I knelt by my mother

Full Text

1. I knelt by my mother, her hand on my head,
And uttered my prayer at her knee;
Now far, far away from her side I have strayed
But my mother is praying for me.

My mother is praying for me,
My mother is praying for me,
For surely I know that wherever I go,
My mother is praying for me.

2. In darkness and sin I have wandered away,
Nor tried from temptation to flee;
But down in my heart I could never forget
That my mother was praying for me. [Refrain]

3. I’m weary of sinning; I turn to the cross,
And its light shining o’er me I see;
I’ll go to my Savior and thank Him again,
That a mother was praying for me. [Refrain]
