Hold fast to the right

Kneel down by the side of your mother, my boy
You have only a moment I know
But stay till I give you this parting addvice
It is all that I have to be stow

    Hold fast to the right, hold fast to the right
    Wherever your footsteps may roam
    Oh forsake not the way of a salvation my boy
    That you learn'd from your mother at home

You leave us to seek your meployment, my boy
By the world you have yet to be tried
But in the temptations and trials you meet
May your heart to the Savior confide

 * Refrain

I gave you to God in your cradle, my boy
And I've taught you the best that I knew
And as long as His mercies permit me to live
And I shall never cease praying  for you

 * Refrain

You will find in your satchel, a Bible, my boy
It's the book of all others the best
It will help you to leve and prepare you to die
And will lead to the gates of the blest

 * Refrain
