(Jeffe)

An old man was sitting at his table one day
Writing a letter to pass time away
His little granddaughter climbed up on his knee
Saying won't you please write a letter for me
Oh what will I say in this letter I pray
Tell mommy I miss her since she went away
and I'm coming to see her real soon I hope
He choked back a big lump that rose in his throat

Tell Mommy I love her
The little girl said and I pray every evenin' before I go to bed
That God up in Heaven will answer my prayer
And take me to live with my mommy up there

He sealed it and wrote on that big envelope
To God up in heaven you'll get this I hope
He stamped it and handed it to her to mail
Her big eyes were shining her little face pale

She was crossing the street to the box o'er the way
And when she stepped out never looked either way
A big auto hit her and sped away fast
The little girls prayers had been answered at last

The postman was passing and picked up the note
Addressed to the Master and these words he spoke
Straight up into heaven this letter did go
She's happy up there with her mommy I know
