My Motherís Prayers
A Song

I never sat alone in my pain
Waiting for help - waiting in vain --
For Mama was there with sweet soothing words
Wisdom to lend when I finally heard.
Oh, how I love the guidance she gave
Helping her child to be brave...

My Motherís prayers came from a loving heart,
My Motherís prayers help me to stand apart.
Choosing my way in careful deeds
I stood alone - but not in need -
For she was there with her Motherís prayer.

Each race I won - Mama was there,
Cheering me on - saying her prayer,
And when I fell, bleeding and bruised,
I could look up to that face I knew -
Shining with hope - telling me true,
ďIíll always be there for you.Ē

My Motherís prayers filled me with hope again,
My Motherís prayers made her my dearest friend,
And in my prayer I called her name
Again and again - I know the gain -
Iím only here because of Mamaís prayers.

My Motherís eyes let His love shine through -
Her deep desires were His wishes too ...
Sometimes at night when Iím all alone
I hear a voice - much like my own -
Saying a prayer, making a plea,
Just like my Mom did for me...

My Motherís prayers - hallowed forevermore -
My Motherís prayers - echo from Heavenís shore,
My Motherís prayers I hear again
And say them when my childís in need -
Loveís always there - in a Motherís prayer....
Loveís always there - in a Motherís prayer.
