I never can forget the day
when my dear mother did sweetly say
"you are leaving, my darling boy
you always have been your mother's joy

now as you leave in this world to roam
you may not be able to get back home
remember Jesus who lives on high
is watching over you with a mighty eye

the world is so full of sin & woe
& many sorrows everywhere you go
the good lord Jesus he's everywhere
if you get in trouble now, he'll meet you there"

now when I think of my mother dear
& how often she tried to cheer
my wondering mind is going astray
by saying "son, accept the way."
