1 I can see my precious mother,
And I hear her gentle voice,
As she told me of my Savior,
And that He should be my choice.
I remember my dear mother,
How she knelt and prayed for me;
And I evermore will love her,
For she taught my feet the way!
2 I have oft been told of pleasure,
And of places where there's joy;
But I will not grieve my mother,
For she said "Don't go, my boy." [Refrain]
3 Oh, 'tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
And obey your mother, too!
For to me they are so precious,
And their love is always true. [Refrain]
4 Oh, dear boys, come now and listen
To your Savior's loving call;
Then at last you'll meet your mother,
Where there's peace and joy for all! [Refrain]Source: New Sacred Quartettes for Male, Female and Mixed Voices #52
