While Kneeling By Her Bedside


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.

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]

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]

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]
