Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

The Mother Who Prayed for Me

Representative Text

1 She has entered into well-earned rest,
She is now among the free, the blest;
But I often feel her near in her sympathy and cheer,—
The sweet mother who prayed for me.

The mother who prayed for me,
The mother who prayed for me,
Thanks unto the Lord I'll give just as long as I shall live
For the mother who prayed for me.

2 Oh, how often, when the call of sin
From the narrow way my soul would win,
I can hear her gentle voice bid me make of God my choice;
The dear mother who prayed for me. [Refrain]

3 Tho' no more I see her at my side,
Yet such love must e'er the same abide,
And I love my Saviour more as her love I ponder o'er;
The dear mother who prayed for me. [Refrain]

4 Keep me faithful, Lord, until that day
When thy voice shall call from earth away,
That at last by Thy good grace I again may see her face;
The dear mother who prayed for me. [Refrain]
