MOTHER, THOU'RT FAITHFUL TO ME
2 Mother.dear mother, thy smiles and tears Have hallowed my footsteps in youth's
tender years,                         [impart
And still will their memory a charm That never, never shall fade from my
heart.                                     [caught
Each wish of my soul in thy bosom was E'er grief framed a word or hope knew
a thought,                           [of thee,
And still, though unmindful I ve been Mother, mother, thou'rt faithful to me.
3 Mother, dear mother, amid the strife, Thy spirit hath borne in the battle of
life, 'Mid envy, ambition, deceit, and pride, Thou'st ever fondly clung to my
side. Time's running sands have furrowed
thy brow,                                [glow;
Care hath bedimmed thy cheek's native But, warm in affection of sacred hue, Mother, mother, thou'rt faithful and true.
MOLLY, DO YOU LOVE ME?
