Jesus Why Do You Want My Mother?


Jesus, why do you want my mother?
She's old and tired don't take her away
Jesus, why do you want my mother?
Leave her here just one more day

I know she deserves it she's suffered and toiled
Beautiful Heaven should be her reward
But do you really need her up there right now
We need her and love her here on Earth, Lord


All my life I've known of that day
When she would leave us and join you up there
But we're not ready we have much to do
Don't take her now is my only prayer
