These are all fantastic! I don't have any particular favorites other than to say that no music has moved me more deeply than the old Spirituals and Gospels I've heard sung at Homegoing Services in small southern churches.

"A Mother's Prayer"
as sung by Ralph Stanley Lyrics submitted by Freddie L Beard
Momma would pray at night by her bedside.
She'd call out to Jesus, in a voice so sincere.
Watch over my children, and show them your mercy;
Don't let 'em belong in this ol' world down here.
Chorus
A Mother's prayer, more precious than diamonds.
A Mother's prayer, more precious than gold.
There's nothin' on Earth, that could compare,
I can still see her kneeling there.
Thank GOD for the Power! For a Mother's prayer!
With tears in my eyes, in the darkest of hours,
I cried, "O' LORD, don't take her from me"!
Then she took my hand, said "son I am ready";
Said the sweetest prayer, then she went off to sleep.
A Mother's prayer, more precious than diamonds.
A Mother's prayer, more precious than gold.
There's nothin' on Earth, that could compare,
I can still see her kneeling there.
Thank GOD for the Power! For a Mother's prayer!
Then I had a dream, I stood before Jesus;
Saw The Book of Life, and my name was in there.
Lord I done so much wrong, and I don't deserve Mercy;
Said, "there's somethin' about your mother's prayer"!
A Mother's prayer, more precious than diamonds.
A Mother's prayer, more precious than gold.
There's nothin' on Earth, that could compare,
I can still see her kneeling there.
Thank GOD for the Power! For a Mother's prayer!
