Mother's Last Word To Her Son

from by The Great Republic of Rough and Ready



I never can forget the day
When my dear mother did sweetly say
"You are leaving, my darling boy,
You always have been your mother's joy."

Now as you leave this world to roam
You may not be able to get back home
But remember Jesus who lives on high
Is watching over you with a mighty eye.

The world is so full of old sin and woe
And many sorrows everywhere you go
But remember Jesus who's everywhere
If you get in trouble now, He'll meet you there

If you'll bow down before His face
And trust in Him for His saving grace
You have a burden He'll make then light
And He sure will guide you in the right

Now when I think of my mother dear
How often she did felt her cheer
My wondering mind was going astray
Was saying son, "Accept the way."
