      Lyrics for The Judds - "The Sweetest Gift"

      One day a mother
      Come to a 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

      [Chorus]
      She did not bring to him
      (Bring to him)
      Parole or pardon
      (Pardon free)
      She brought no silver
      (Brought no gold)
      No pomp nor style
      (Him to see)
      It was a halo
      (Halo bright)
      Sent down from heaven
      (Heaven's light)
      The sweetest gift
      (A mother's smile)

      Her boy had wandered
      Far from the far side
      Though she had pleaded
      With him each night
      But not a word did
      She ever utter
      That told her heartaches
      Her smile was bright

      [Chorus]

      She left a smile
      You can remember
      She's gone to heaven
      From heartache's free
      Them bars around you
      Will never change her
      He was her baby
      An error will be

      [Chorus]

      It was a halo bright
      Sent down from heaven's light
      The sweetest gift
      A mother's smile
