GOODNIGHT, MAMA

Written July 3, 2010 by Joel Harris

Walking through your door, sitting on your bed

Talking about everything together

We’ll talk into the night, till everything seems clear again

And there’s only one thing left to say…

Goodnight, mama, I’m so glad that you’re here to talk to

Sleep well, I’ll see you soon

Thank you, Jesus, for a mother who pours herself out

Always something more to do

Walking through your door, bringing you your food

Talking about how you slept last night

We only have a little while, till you need to rest again

And there’s only one thing left to say…

Goodnight, mama, I’m so glad that I got to see you

Sleep well, I’ll be back soon

Thank you, Jesus, for a mother who poured her life out

Please fill her anew

Walking through your door, to see you one more time

Thinking about all the times we’ve shared

Not much longer now, because He’s calling you home

And there’s only one thing left to say…

Goodbye, mama, I’m so glad that I got to know you

Farewell, I’ll see you soon

Take her, Jesus, to a place with no pain or sickness

To heaven with you
