Alabama – If I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again lyrics

How sweet and happy seem those days of which I dream
When memory recalls them now and then
And with what rapture sweet my weary heart would beat
If I could hear my mother pray again

If I could hear my mother pray again
If I could hear her tender voice as then
So happy I would be
Would mean so much to me
If I could hear my mother pray again

She used to pray that I on Jesus would rely
And always walked the shining gospel way
So trusting still his love
I seek that home above
Where I shall meet my mother some glad day

Within the old home place her patient smiling face
Was always spreading comfort hope and cheer
And when she used to sing to her eternal king
It was the songs the angels loved to hear

Her work on earth is done the life crown has been won
And she will be at rest with Him above
And some glad morning she I know will welcome me
To that eternal home of peace and love

If I could hear my mother pray again
If I could hear her tender voice as then
So happy I would be
Would mean so much to me
If I could hear my mother pray again

If I could hear my mother pray again

Pray again

    It means if you have a loving, godly mother that has brought you up in the way of the lord, you need to remember what she taught you. You will lose her one day and all you will have are the memories. But you know your mother is in heaven waiting for you and you have to live the life the lord intended you to live, and one day your mother will welcome you at heaven's gate one glad day. Never turn away from your mother. Cherish every day you have with her on earth. And this also holds true with your dad. I think of this song for my mom and my dad. They were both bery special to me. And I have many wonderful memories to hold on to until that day when we will meet in the "family circle" in the sky.

    My mother was always praying, around the house doing housework, driving the car, where ever she was she always had a prayer on her heart and talking to the lord. She's been gone since 1985 and I do miss her so much. I miss hearing her pray, crying out to god for others needs. She was a great mom and I am thankful for the love and inspiration she has left me.
