I was but a youth and thoughtless,
As all youths are apt to be;
Though I had a Christian mother
Who had taught me carefully.

There came a time when pleasure
Of the world came to allure,
And I no more sought the guidance
Of her love so good and pure.

Her tender admonitions fell
But lightly on my ear,
And for the gentle warnings
I felt an inward sneer.

But mother would not yield her boy
To Satan's sinful sway,
And though I spurned her counsel
She knew a better way.

She made my room an altar,
A place of secret prayer,
And there she took her burden
And left it in His care.

And morning, noon and evening
By that humble bedside low,
She sought the aid of Him who
Understands a mother's woe.

And I went my way unheeding,
Careless of the life I led,
Until one day I noticed
Prints of elbows on my bed.

Then I saw that she had been there
Praying for her wayward boy,
Who for love of worldly pleasure
Would her peace of mind destroy.

Long the conflict raged within me,
Sin against my mother's prayers,
Sin must yield - for Mother never
While she daily met Him there.

And her constant love and patience
Were like coals upon my head,
Together with the imprints
Of her elbows on my bed.

And so at last the fight was won,
And I to Christ was led,
And mother's prayers were answered
By her elbows on my bed.

Genesis 3: 20.  And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

 Genesis 17:15.  And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.
 16.  And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.


Matthew 10:37.  He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
 38.  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
 39.  He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.


Matthew 12:46.  While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
 47.  Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
 48.  But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
 49.  And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
 50.  For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.


Ephesians 6: 1.  Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
 2.  Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
 3.  That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

 1 Timothy 5:1.  Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;
 2.  The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.
 3.  Honour widows that are widows indeed.
