TAUGHT ME ABOUT THE LORD
have an earthly father that I could call my own
But I had a loving mother who made for me a home.
would hold me tender, in a sweet, loving embrace.
And I can still remember that smile upon her beautiful face.
the greatest mother, any girl could ever have
And when the Lord called her home ,it made me very sad.
had told me about a man, who's name was Jesus Christ.
And she said if you are ever in trouble, he can make it right.
that God The Father, he truly loved his son
But he had to sacrifice him, for the sins of everyone.
that God was the Father, that I never felt I had,
And that he loved his children ,even when they were bad.
all you had to do, is get on your knees and say,
Oh Gracious Father up in Heaven, forgive my sins today.
miss my mama but someday I know that I will see
That beautiful place called Heaven, where God and mama wait for me.
