As sung by C R. Dockstader.

I remember the songs that my mother used to sing
When I was a child long ago;
I see her dear face bending over me now,
As she sang in a voice sweet and low.
How she'd cheer and caress me, and teach me to talk,
As close to her side I would creep;
At the close of the day she would teach me to pray,
I remember: "Now I lay me down to sleep."

Siny that good old song, that dear, good, sweet old song,
The old song dear to us in days gone by;
Oh, the ones we used to hear from our angel mother dear,
The song that she sang for you and I.

And when I older grew to other scenes I roamed,
Then when alone at evening I would be
I would sit down and think of the dear ones at home,
It seemed my mother's face I could see;
As she sang me to sleep in the days long ago,
How again I would dearly love to hear
The songs that my mother sang for they were sweet to me,
The songs of my old mother dear.-Chorus.
