Speak Kindly to Your Mother.
Copyright, 1888, by Isidore Prager.
Words and Music by J. W. Wood.

Speak kindly to your mother, now she's old and gray,
Soon her journey will be o'er and she'll pass away;
When gone you'll sadly miss her-though kind friends you'll meet,
You will find no other love like mother's ever sweet.
She has proved herself to be a loving friend to you;
From your earliest childhood hours ever she's been true,
So remember when you greet her, and when she is near.
Never speak an unkind word to your mother dear.

Chorus.
Speak kindly to your mother, now she's old and gray,
Soon her journey will be o'er, and she'll pass away;
When gone you'll sadly miss her when dark clouds appear;
Never speak an unkind word to your mother dear.

Speak kindly to your mother, 'twill not be in vain;
Constant is their precious love, till death it will remain;
When o'er you shadows darken mother will be nigh
With connael sweet to guide you till the clouds go by.
In after years you stand beside an angel mother's grave,
And watch the creeping grasses, while blossoms o'er her wave;
Though far beyond recall, this your heart will cheer.
You never gave an unkind word to your mother dear.-Chorus.
