I heard my mother call my name in prayer

1 While kneeling by her bedside on the cottage on the hill,
My mother prayed her blessings on me there;
She was talking then to Jesus while ev’rything was still,
And I heard my mother call my name in prayer.

Refrain:
Yes I heard my mother call my name in prayer,
She was pouring out her heart to Jesus there,
Then I gave my heart to Him and He saved my soul from sin
For He heard my mother call my name in prayer.

2 She was anxious for her boy to be just what He ought to be
And she asked the Lord to take Him in His care;
Just the words I can’t remember but I know she prayed for me
For I heard my mother call my name in prayer. [Refrain]

3 How my heart was touched and tendered by the pray’r that mother pray’d!
I can almost see her form now kneeling there;
As she told her Lord and Savior just how far from Him I strayed,
Yes, I heard my mother call my name in prayer. [Refrain]

4 Then I gave my heart to Jesus and am living now for Him
And some day I’ll go to meet Him in the air;
For He heard my mother praying and has saved my soul from sin
Yes, He heard my mother call my name in prayer. [Refrain]
