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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

I thought of you, mother

Full Text

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]

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.
