From: Orison Rollins email@example.com By Ricky Skaggs – Live at Charleston Music Hall I Heard My Mother Call My Name In Prayer Key of G 1. [G] While kneeling by her bedside in a [D] cottage on the [G] hill, My mother prayed her blessings on me [D] there She was [G] talking there to Jesus while [Em] everything was [G] still and I heard my mother [D] call my name in [G] prayer. Chorus: Yes I [D] heard my mother call my name in [G] prayer She was [A7] pourin out her heart to Jesus [D] there Then I [G] Gave my heart to him and he [Em] saved my soul from [G] sin For he heard my mother [D] call my name in [G] prayer 2. She was [G] anxious for her boy to be just [D] what he ought to [G] be And she asked the Lord to take him in his [D] care Just the words [G] I can't remember but I [Em] know she prayed for [G] me For I heard my mother [D] call my name in [G] prayer 3. So I [G] gave my heart to Jesus and [D] I'm livin now for [G] him And someday I'll go and meet him in the [D] air For he heard my [G] mother praying and he [Em] saved my soul from sin [G] Yes he heard my mother [D] call my name in [G] prayerHome
