Mother Dear, O Pray For Me lyrics

Verse 1

Mother dear, o pray for me!
Whilst far from heavn and thee.
I wander in a fragile bark,
Oer lifes tempestuous sea.
O virgin mother, from thy throne,
So bright in bliss above.
Protect thy child and cheer my path
With thy sweet smile of love.

Verse 2

Mother dear, o pray for me!
Should pleasures siren lay.
Eer tempt thy child to wander far
From virtues path away.
When thorns beset lifes devious way,
And darkling waters flow.
Then mary aid thy weeping child,
Thyself a mother show.

Chorus

Mother dear, remember me!
And never cease thy care,
till in heaven eternally,
Thy love and bliss I share.
