1 When I reach my home eternal,
Reach that city bright and fair,
When I stand among the angels,
Will my mother know me there?

Yes, I know that she will know me,
In those mansions bright and fair;
Mother’s love can ne’er forget me,
And I’m sure shell know me there.

2 I have changed with changing seasons,
I am bent with toil and care,
Do you think she will remember,
Will my mother know me there? [Refrain]

3 Oft for me my mother wrestled,
When she used to kneel in pray’r,
Do you think that she’ll forget me,
Will my mother know me there? [Refrain]

4 Mother’s face has been a beacon,
O’er a sea of deep despair,
I shall look for her up yonder,
Will my mother know me there? [Refrain]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
