Mamma Prayed For Me

Mamma’d take me in her arms 
and sit me on her knee,         
read to me from the bible,       
and then she’d pray for me.           

Chorus
Yes mamma prayed for me         
and she learnt me how to pray.     
I never will forget
the words she taught me to say.


Throughout all my teenage years
she tried to make me see
the proper way to lead life.
The way things ought to be.

Chorus
Yes mamma prayed for me         
and she learnt me how to pray     
I never will forget
the words she taught me to say.


The day that I got married
as I walked down the aisle
I looked across at mamma,
her face wreathed in a smile.

Chorus
I knew she prayed for me,
the way she learnt me to pray.
I never will forget
the words she taught me to say.


Mamma is long gone now but
still in my heart she lives.
I pray the way she taught me
for the comfort that it gives.

Chorus
I ‘m glad she prayed for me,
And that she learnt me to pray.
I never will forget
the words she taught me to say.
