The Sweetest Give (F)
One day a mother came to a prison
To see an erring but precious son.
She told the warden how much she loved him;
It did not matter what he had done.
She did not bring a parole or pardon.
(bring to him) (pardon plea)
She brought no silver no pomp or style.
(brought no gold) (none to see)
It was a halo sent down from heaven,
(halo bright) (heaven's light)
C G C
The sweetest gift, a mother's smile.
Her boy had wandered far from the fireside,
Though she had pleaded with him each night.
But not a word did she ever utter;
Her heart was flowing, her smile was bright.
She left a smile you can remember.
She's gone to heaven from heartache's grief.
Those walls around you will never change you;
You were her baby and e'er will be.
