This life is beset with temptation,Surrounding us everywhere,But Jesus is able to keep you—Remember your mother’s prayer.
“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.
“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.
The praises of that saint we sing,To whom all lands their tribute bring,Who with indomitable heart,Bore throughout life true woman’s heart.
Restraining every froward senseBy gentle bonds of abstinence,With prayer her hungry souls she fed,And thus to heavenly joys hath sped.
King Christ, from Whom all virtue springs,Who only doest wondrous things,As now to Thee she kneels in prayer,In mercy our petitions hear.
All praise to God the Father be,All praise, eternal Son, to Thee;Whom with the Spirit we adoreForever and forevermore.
