Mama didn't have special trainin'
She couldn't read the music, just the words
But when she'd stand to sing on Sunday mornin'
She had the sweetest voice I think I've, I've ever heard.

She loved to sing the songs about our Savior
"There is a Fountain", was her favorite one
And I've seen tears run down the cheeks of sinners
By the time my mama's song was done.

When mama sang the angels stopped to listen
You could see the love light shinin' in her face
When mama sang the angels stopped to listen
Now in heaven' choir she had a special places.

--- Instrumental ---

(Spoken)
You know my daddy wanted me to sing a song
The day that moma left us
And you know that little chuch
Was filled with all of mama's friends
And you know it seems we could all here mama singin'
When I could hear her sing her favorite, again.

(Sang)
When mama sang the angels stopped to listen
You could see the love light shining in her face
When mama sang the angels stopped to listen
Now in heaven' choir she had a special places.

When mama sang the angels stopped to listen.
