Take this message to my mother
It will fill her heart with joy
Tell her that I've met my savior
God has saved her wand'ring boy.
The tears and sorrow I have caused her
How I wish I could re-pay
But tell her I'll be waiting for her
We'll meet in heaven some glad day.
How she cried when I left her
I know it filled her heart with pain
She said, son, please don't leave me
For we may never meet again.
Years have passed since that parting
But I know she waits and prays
Soon I'll cross that dark river
Please let her know that I was saved.
