I Heard My Mother Call My Name In Prayer

print

While kneeling by her bedside in a cottage on the hill
My mother prayed her blessings on me there
She was talking there to Jesus while everything was still
and I heard my mother call my name in prayer

   Yes I heard my mother call my name in prayer
   She was pourin 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

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

So I gave my heart to Jesus and I’m livin now for him
And someday I’ll go and meet him in the air
For he heard my mother praying and he saved my soul from sin
Yes he heard my mother call my name in prayer
