1 I never can forget the day
I heard my mother kindly say,
"You’re leaving now my tender care;
Remember, child, your mother’s prayer."
Whene’er I think of her so dear,
I feel her angel spirit near;
A voice comes floating on the air,
Reminding me of Mother’s prayer.
2 I never can forget the voice
That always made my heart rejoice;
Though I have wandered, God knows where,
Still I remember Mother’s prayer. [Chorus]
3 Tho' years have gone, I can’t forget
Those words of joy—I hear them yet;
I see her by the old armchair,
My mother dear, in humble prayer. [Chorus]
4 I never can forget the hour
I felt the Savior’s cleansing pow’r.
My sin and guilt be canceled there,
'Twas there He answered mother’s prayer.
Oh, praise the Lord for saving grace!
We’ll meet up yonder face to face;
The home above together share,
In answer to my mother’s prayer.
