Favoured son throughout his youth,
She tried the best she knew in truth,
But he drifted aside from the narrow way,
Lost in the choices of that day.
Now, deaf to all his mother’s pleas,
He can‘t resist the pull of dis-ease,
He‘s drawn along by a magnetic force;
She cannot change the path of his course.
He’s about to self-destruct
As deeper into the mire he’s sucked!
Oh, Father God, in Jesus name
Help the mother to save her son
Fill them with faith and Your unending love
And send them Your strength from heav’n above.
