I Remember You, Love in My Prayers

When the curtains of night are pinned back by the stars
And the beautiful moon leaps the skies,
When the dewdrops of heaven are kissing the rose
It is then that my memory flies
As if on the wings of some beautiful dove
In haste with the message it brings,
To bring you a kiss of affection and say,
I remember you, love, in my prayers.

Chorus –
Go where you, may, on land or on sea,
I’ll share all your sorrows and cares,
And at night, when I kneel by my bedside to pray,
I remember you, love, in my prayers.

I have loved you too fondly to ever forget
The love you have spoken to me;
The kiss of affection still warm on my lips,
When you told me how true you would be.
I know not if fortune be fickle or friend,
Or if time on your memory wears,
I know that I love you wherever you roam,
And remember you, love in my prayers.

When the heavenly angels are guarding the good,
As God has ordained them to do,
In answer to prayers that I offer to Him,
I know there is one watching you;
And may its bright spirit go with you through life,
To guide you up heaven’s bright stairs,
And meet with the one who has loved you so true
And remember you, love in her prayers.

Some of you have, no doubt, heard
your mothers sing “I Remember You,
Love in My Prayers.” – Editor Our
