Dear Brother, Mama left us this morning
Death's angels took her away
She's gone to meet Daddy up there in Heaven

And my tears, they fell like rain

She left this world with a smile on her face
Whispering the Saviour's name
Dear Brother, Mama left us this morning
For the city where there is no pain
