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 free
She brought no silver
(Brought no gold)
No pomp nor style
(Longed to see)

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 'ere will be

She did not bring to him a parole or pardon free
She brought no silver
(Brought no gold)
No pomp nor style
(Longed to see)

It was a halo bright
Sent down from Heaven's light
The sweetest gift
A mother's smile

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
