TRUST THE BOY WHOSE MOTTO IS "MY MOTHER."
Copyright, 1884, by W. A. Evans & Bro.
By J. W. Wheeler.
Oh! trust the boy whose motto is "My mother,"
Whose happiest hours are those when mother's near;
His thoughts are more for her than any other,
No friend to him is ever half so dear;
Lovingly how oft he's lingered by her side And heard her pray,
Should temptation meet my darling, stop and think what mother dear would say.
Trust him as you would no other, you will find him ever true,
The boy whose motto is "My mother," will prove an honest friend to you.
Then trust the boy whose motto is "My mother,"
You'll find him at his post when duty calls;
He'll prove as true to you as any brother.
No matter where or when the burden fulls;
Trust the boy with such a motto, never fear his word to take.
Trust him for his sterling honor, you will find him true for mother's sake.- Cho.
