I was but a damsel in distress
Tormented to the point where I could get no rest
My mother once told me if ever in trouble,
Call on Lord Jesus and he'd be there on the double
I thought of my mother and did like she said,
I cried out Lord Jesus and fell on my bed
Like a knight on a white horse he did come unto me,
And with his mighty sword he did set me free
How grateful am I for the words of my mother
Who taught me that I should never call on no other
