Membrance of Mother

Cat. #1003 (MFH #448) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on October 7, 1969

On a dark stormy night th angels called Mother
Th love we had such a short while
She called us around her an' said, she was leaving
Then closin' her eyes, she went with a smile

Now, Mother's at rest in a lonesome graveyard
On a hill far away stands her white tomb
O, how we love her an' how we'll miss her
But when Jesus comes, sweet flowers will bloom

I'll never forget th love Mother give us
As children we played around th old home
I know her reward is a mansion in Heaven
While children on earth are left here to mourn
