  • She labored so hard in this world below
    She didn't have things that most mothers know
    Raising her children on a widow's small pay
    Washing and ironing since dad passed away

    I wanna go to heaven when this life is over
    I wanna be with Jesus on eternity shore
    But if I've a crown coming when rewards go around
    Please blessed Jesus give mother my crown

    I didn't realize it when I was a lad
    Just how great a burden my mother had
    Adoption was offered but mama said no
    She raised us and taught us the right way to go

    I wanna go to heaven when this life is over
    I wanna be with Jesus on eternity shore
    But if I've a crown coming when rewards go around
    Please blessed Jesus give mother my crown
