The Last Sweet Words of Mother.
Copyright, 1881, by W. F. Shaw.
Words by George Cooper. Music by Chas. E Pratt.

Of all the memories that I keep,
Like roses in my breast,
A gentle one lies hidden deep,
Far sweeter than the rest.
It brings me back one sunny year,
One dream of childhood's glee;
The last sweet words of mother dear
Are whisper'd now to me.

The last sweet words of mother,
How dear their echo seems;
They bless my sad and lonely heart
With bright and heavenly beams.

I gaze within he gentle eyes,
Where shines the parting tear,
Again her tender soft replies
In accents pure I hear!
Her loving hand is on my brow,
Her lips are meeting mine;
Altho' in sadness I may bow,
These dreams my heart entwine.-Chorus.

The last sweet words of mother dear
Shall never fade away,
Like voice of angels hov'ring near
They glad my life to-day.
The joys of old return once more
With all their mem'ries sweet,
And mine they are till life is o'er.
And fondly " we shall meet.-Chorus.
