Copyright, 1887, by Chas. P. Blake & Co.

When I was a tiny lad,
Father said to me,
"Stand by your mother, Jack,
When I'm away at sea."
My heart recall the years of care
That frost my mother's head,
Ah! cherished be each whitening hair,
And dear those words he said.

Stand by your mother, Jack,
Your duty do,
And should I ne'er come back,
Be thou ever true;
Love and respect her, lad,
More day by day,
Stand by your mother
When her hair is turning gray.

Often in my watch at sea.
When night gathers near,
Tender mem'ries come to me
Of home and mother dear;
She comes as in my childhood days.
With hand upon my head,
I see her tender, loving eyes.
And hear the words he said.-Chorus.

While life lasts, this holy trust
I will sacred keep,
Till beside his hallowed dust
My mother shares his sleep;
I'll guard with patient, tender love,
My mother, day by day.
And to my father faithful prove.
For still I hear him say:- Chorus. .
