SOME MOTHER'S CHILD, by            
First Line: No matter how far from the right she hath strayed
Last Line: For her sake deal gently with--some mother's child.
Subject(s): Mothers


NO matter how far from the right she hath strayed;
No matter what inroads dishonor hath made;
No matter what elements cankered the pearl--
Though tarnished and sullied, she is some mother's girl.

No matter how wayward his footsteps have been;
No matter how deep he is sunken in sin;
No matter how low is his standard of joy;--
Though guilty and loathsome, he is some mother's boy.

That head hath been pillowed on some tender breast;
That form hath been wept o'er, those lips have been pressed;
That soul hath been prayed for, in tones sweet and mild
For her sake deal gently with--some mother's child.
