A Prayer for my Mom

Now I lay me down to sleep

 On a bed of thorns I shall not weep

I pray the lord my soul to keep

wrapped in his warm embrace

If I die before I wake

What a glorious fate

I pray the lord my soul to take

Higher than this mortal plain

To play among the clouds so high

Where angels dance and sparrows fly

In his grace I shall not weep

Kneeling down at his feet

In his embrace I shall not die

Upon his throne sitting so high

In his love I find peace

Now I lay me down to sleep!

 

One thought on “A Prayer for my Mom

  1. This was a beautiful ” Ode to Your Mother “. As a Mother I can say we all hope that our children get older and recognize that as parents we can only do the best that we can with the knowledge we have and hope that we steer our children away for the evil that is out there. Sometimes it works and sometimes they have to have to findout the eevil by themselves. This was just beautiful Mrs. Angel and I thank you for sharing.
