Sweetest gift a mother's smile 

One day a mother came to the prison

To see an erring but precious son

She told the warden how much she loved him

It did not matter what he had done

 

She did not bring to him a parole or pardon

She brought no silver no pomp or style

It was a halo bright sent down from heaven

The sweetest gift a mother's smile

 

Her boy had drifted far from the fireside

Tho she had pleaded with him each night

Yet not a word did she ever utter

And tho her heart ached her smile was bright 

Refrain 

She left a smile son you can remember

She's gone to heaven from heartache free

The bars around you could never change her

You were her baby and ere will be 

—Excerpts from The Sweetest Gift song originally by The Blue Sky Boys
