Words and Music by C T. Lockwood.

Oh, my child, my darling child, how much I love thee,
Thou art all that's left thy mother's heart to cheer;
And the long and dreary days, how sad they would be,
Were thou gone and I to weep the silent tear.

Left alone, left alone,
Thou art all that's left thy mother's heart to cheer;
Oh, this world how cold And sad to meet it would be,
Were you gone and I to weep the silent tear.

Why, ah, why should fortune frown so sadly on me?
Heavenly Father, hear a mother's earnest prayer;
Spare my darling boy, oh, spare him I implore Thee,
I'm alone to mourn and weep the silent tear.-Chorus.

Silent voices, once so joyous, how we miss them,
Here and there the severed link it may be found;
Where's my father? where's my mother where's my loved one?
They are sleeping sweetly, sleeping 'neath the ground.-Cho.

Fold thine arms, thy little arms so close around me,
Papa's child, how much he loved his little one;
When that kiss, alas! that parting kiss he gave thee,
And with weeping eyes he said: I'll soon come home.-Cho.
