Of all the songs my mother sang
I most remember three
That come across the waste of years
And bring her voice to me.

The first about a faded rose
Once given as a token
Of love that should live on and on
When vows and hearts were broken.

The next a lilting lyric is
Of wild brooks running gay
As lovers under orchard trees
When all the world is May.

The last of one lone Stranger tells
Who made the blind to see
And walked with pierced and bleeding feet
The shores of Galilee.

Life's Maytime spread its blooms for me
And all its joys paraded;
I long ago have lived to see
Love's fairest flowers faded;

But he who walked beside the lake
In sunny Galilee
Remains as faithful as he was
When mother sang to me.
