Oh! Write Me a Song of My Father.
Words And Music by C. Henry.

Oh! write me a song of my father,
And tell me the reason, I pray.
You ever write songs about mother,
Not a word of dear father you say?
Is his love and affection less ardent?
Does his heart less emotion bestow?
Though the sun to the moon is less ardent,
Still but one light from both o'er us glow

Chorus.
Oh! write me a song of my father,
And tell me the reason, I pray.
You ever write songs about mother.
Not a word of dear father you say?

Oh! think of him when in your childhood,
With dear mother he'd fervently pray,
And call you his child and his darling,
And that God might protect you alway;
Then blessings and kisses he'd give you,
And call you his own pretty boy,
When scarce you could lisp the word "Father!"
And your heart free from earthly alloy.-Chorus.

And now that you've grown into manhood,
Be grateful to him whose fond care
Ever guarded both you and your mother,
And as oft dried the sorrowful tear.
Oh! love him, think not of him lightly.
Cheer his heart, let it not be oppressed;
Love your mother, but don't forget father,
Let the one with the other be blessed.-Chorus.
