Mother, at Your Feet is Kneeling

- 1 -
Mother at your feet is kneeling
One who loves you, 'tis your child
Who has sighed so oft to see you
Bless me, Mother, bless your child.
Mother, when my Jesus calls me
From this world so dark and drear
From the wily snares of Satan,
Shield me, Mother, Mother dear.

(Non chanté ici)
Dearest Mother, tell my Jesus
How I love Him fond and true
And oh Mary, dearest Mother,
Tell Him I belong to you.

- 2 -(Non chanté ici)
Plead for me when Jesus judges
Answer for me when He asks
How I spent so many moments,
How perform'd so many tasks.
Mary, oh my dearest Mother,
May it e'er to me be giv'n
As, on earth I fondly love Thee,
So, to love Thee still in Heav'n.



Version française:

(Non chanté ici)
À tes pieds ô tendre Mère
Je viens dire mon amour
Tu sais que je veux te plaire
Oh! prends mon coeur sans retour
Quand de cette vie sur terre
Dieu voudra me rappeler
Sois près de moi bonne mère
Pour me bénir, me sauver.

Pour Jésus, ô tendre Mère
Garde mon coeur humble et pur
Prends pitié de ma misère
Toi plus belle que l'azur.


Sister S.C. (1947)
