This Life Is Beset With Temptation


This life is beset with temptation,
Surrounding us everywhere,
But Jesus is able to keep you-
Remember your mother’s prayer.

Refrain
Remember, my child, Oh, remember,
The years of maternal care;
The days that I prayed for you, dear one-
Remember your mother’s prayer.

My life and its labors are over,
I’m going to rest over there;
Abide in the love of your Savior-
Remember your mother’s prayer. [Refrain]

Though gone, I shall never forget you,
But wait in my mansion fair,
That sometime I’ll meet you up yonder-
Remember your mother’s prayer. [Refrain]
