Mama told me to never leave the presence of Christ,

For He gave me bright sight.

Mama told me He’s Christ the King,

For with him I’ll be able to sing

Mama told me He’s Divine mercy

For He’s more skillful than Lionel Messi

Mama told me I’ll find peace when I’m with Him

And my eyes will never go dim.


Mama was right

Mama may have seen the light

Mama’s vision was so bright

Mama told me all these like a knight

Mama said don’t go away from him even in the night

Mama know Christ is my sight


Mama like other women stood by my side

Mama took me to meet Christ inside

Mama wants Him to bless me both inside and outside

Mama’s prayers placed me at His own side


Mama wants me to be like Christ

Mama said “my son you must rise”

Mama brought me someone that will make me wise

Mama brought me Christ and said son “Arise”


Mama said read so you can lead

Let your dream flow like a stream

Motivate and cultivate

Be creative but don’t create thieves

I told mama to take me home

Mama said son your home is in Christ

For with Him you’re always right.
