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.

Refrain:
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]
