I'd been to church on Sunday, and I'd been in jail
And I put my family through livin' hell
And I'd been a heavy cross to bear
On the wings of mama's prayers

I spent her last dollar on somethin' bad for me
I finally hit rock bottom, couldn't get up on my knees
But the strength came to lift me up from there
On the wings of mama's prayers

I see her by the bed with her Bible open wide
Lookin' up at Heaven with tears in her eyes
She knew when I was troubled, she knew when I was scared
And I found salvation on the wings of mama's prayers

I was lost in the darkness searchin' for the end
But the light of mama's love led me back again
An' if I've got a place in Heaven, I'll get there
On the wings of mama's prayers

I see her by the bed with her Bible open wide
Lookin' up at Heaven with tears in her eyes
She knew when I was troubled, she knew when I was scared
And I found salvation on the wings of mama's prayers
I'm still holdin' on to the wings of mama's prayers
