The Lord's Prayer - 1969
 

Mother Dear,
O Pray for Me

Verse 1

Mother dear, O pray for me,
Whilst far from heav'n and thee.
I wander in a fragile barque,
O'er life's tempestuous sea.
O Virgin Mother, from thy throne,
So bright in bliss above.
Protect thy child and cheer my path
With thy sweet smile of love.

Chorus

Mother dear, remember me,
And never cease thy care.
'Till in heaven eternally,
Thy love and bliss I share.

Verse 2

Mother dear, O pray for me,
When all looks bright and fair.
That I may all my danger see
For surely  then 'tis near.
A mother's prayer how much we need,
If prosperous be the ray,
That paints with gold the flowery mead,
Which blossoms in our way.

Chorus

Mother dear, remember me,
And never cease thy care.
'Till in heaven eternally,
Thy love and bliss I share.
