The Sweetest Gift.

One day a mother went 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 to him a parole or pardon.
She brought no silver, no pomp or style.
It was a halo bright sent down from heaven’s light,
The sweetest gift, a mother’s smile.

She left a smile you can remember.
She’s gone to heaven from heartaches free.
Those walls around you could never change her,
You were her baby and e’er will be.

She did not bring to him a parole or pardon.
She brought no silver, no pomp or style.
It was a halo bright sent down from heaven’s light,
The sweetest gift, a mother’s smile.

She did not bring to him a parole or pardon.
She brought no silver, no pomp or style.
It was a halo bright sent down from heaven’s light,
The sweetest gift, a mother’s smile.
The sweetest gift, a mother’s smile.
