A Mother's Prayer-Spritual Homegoing

I HEARD THE NEWS
YOU WERE FEELING DOWN
I WANTED TO COME SEE YOU
AND STAY AWHILE
YOU JUST LAID THERE
AND DIDN'T WANT TO SPEAK
I UNDERSTOOD YOU JUST WANTED TO WEEP
BUT I'M HERE TO TELL YOU GOD HEARD YOUR PRAYER
I GUESS YOU WERE WONDERING, HOW COULD YOUR BARE
YOUR WORDS ARE FEW, BUT I'M STILL HERE
GOD SAID I NEVER LEFT YOUR SIDE
NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU WANTED TO CRY
I ALWAYS TOLD YOU I'D BE THERE
DON'T YOU WORRY OR DESPAIR
NOT FOR THE PHYSICAL EYE TO SEE
SOMETHING EVEN MORE FOR YOU AND ME
KEEP ME IN YOUR HEART
I'M ALWAYS THERE
EVEN IN MY 'MOTHER'S PRAYERS'
I KNOW SHE'S IN A BETTER PLACE
SHE KNEW HIS MERCY AND HIS GRACE
KEEP HER IN A SOLEMN PRAYER
DON'T YOU WORRY OR DESPAIR
I HEARD THE NEWS YOU WERE FEELING DOWN
I WANTED TO COME AND STAY AWHILE
KEEP ME IN YOUR HEART I'M ALWAYS THERE
EVEN IN A MOTHER'S PRAYER
