Always Do Your Duty, Boy.
Copyright, 1885, by Willis Woodward & Co.

Pleasant memory brings to mind
Many years ago,
Mother's voice so very kind,
Gentle, soft and low;
Nothing evermore can be,
Dearer than her words to me,
As I sat upon her knee
Many years ago.

Always do your duty, boy, never go astray,
Life is one great battle, boy, fight it as you may;
Keep the right upon your side wherever you may be,
Always do your duty, boy, were mother's words to me.

As I struggle on through life,
All the skies seem clear,
Pushing forward in the strife,
Nothing can I fear;
Tho' I sail the boundless main,
Nothing seems to me in vain,
Comes to me the old refrain,
Mother's voice I hear-Chorus.

Earthly treasures all are naught
If you go astray,
Better lesson ne'er was taught,
Heed it as you may;
Tho' the words are very few,
They will profit bring to you;
Test them all your journey through,
Evermore I pray.-Chorus.
