'Tis mother's hand unerring leads

Representative Text

1 'Tis mother's hand unerring leads,
In paths of peace our childhood's feet;
'Tis mother's patient heart awaits,
And longs a wayward child to greet.

'Tis mother's hand, 'tis mother's heart,
For other's joy delights to live;
'Tis mother's sweet unbounded love,
For other's good her life will give.

2 'Tis mother's feet that never tire,
Of errands for the loved at home;
Her recompense must be up higher,
Her rest, her joy will surely come. [Chorus]

3 'Tis mother's pray'r that reaches heav'n,
And moves the everlasting arm,
To safeguard ev'ry erring child,
And sweetly shelter from all harm. [Chorus]
