Hank Snow – I'll Not Forget My Mother's Prayer lyrics
I never shall forget the day
I heard my dear old mother say
'I'm leaving now the old home dear,
Remember Jack your mother's prayer. ''

She left me as the golden sun
Behind the hill top it did hide
And when I found that she had gone
I laid my guitar down and cried.

Chorus:
And now she's gone this world is drear
I long to have dear mother here
She's gone to join the angels there
I'll not forget my mother's prayer.

The birds were still, no sound was made
The organ sad but sweetly played
As by her side we gathered there
Our heads bowed down in silent prayer.

We laid here where the fragrant rose
Was blooming o'er her lonely grave
And now in answer to her prayer
I'll meet dear mother some sweet day.

Chorus:
And now she's gone this world is drear
I long to have dear mother here
She's gone to join the angels there
I'll not forget my mother's prayer...
