Mama Was a Lot Like Jesus

I've seen her give her last five dollars
To a stranger on the street
And do without a dress she wanted
So we would have enough to eat
When the ladies at the garden club
Looked down their nose at her
I watched her turn the other cheek
Without one bitter word

Mama was a lot like Jesus
The way she lived and loved
A blessin' sent from heaven up above
She would pray for our forgiveness
And sacrifice for us
Mama was a lot like Jesus

She could stretch a bag of groceries
For two weeks to keep us fed
She could take an old brown potted plant
And raise it from the dead
Her words were like a healing touch
When we had a broken heart
And when I wrestled with the devil
Oh she led me through the dark

'Cause Mama was a lot like Jesus
The way she lived and loved
A blessin' sent from heaven up above
She would pray for our forgiveness
And sacrifice for us
Mama was a lot like Jesus

I've got my Daddy's eyes
I've got my Daddy's hair
But, I hope my mama's heart
Is inside of me somewhere

'Cause Mama was a lot like Jesus
The way she lived and loved
A blessin' sent from heaven up above
She would pray for our forgiveness
And sacrifice for love
Mama was a lot like Jesus

My mama was a lot like Jesus
