AS I SAT UPON MY OWN DEAR MOTHER'S KNEE
*unknown*
from a collection of Utah Pioneer collected by the D.U.P. in 1930

I've a tender recollection that I'll cherish all my life
And age but makes it dearer by the day
'Tis the memory of a mother whose smiles in days a-gone
Drove all my fancied troubles far away
I remember in the evening when the fire was burning bright
She'd call me to her side and say to me
Be brave my boy and truthful, and never be ashamed
Of the lessons that you learned on mother's knee

CHORUS:
She was gentle, she was kind
And I'll ever bear in mnd
The many golden lessons she taught me
I have wealth and earthly power
Yet I'd give all for one hour
That I sat upon my dear old mother's knee

How her gentle smile would cheer me when evening I'd return
From toiling in the meadow all the day
Each loving word brought comfort but that voice is silent now
The mother that I loved has passed away
In the quiet village churchyard she has slumbered many years
And the only treasure life holds dear to me
In the mound that oft in the twilight I have moistenend with my tears
And the lessons that I learned on mother's knee
(chorus)

AS I SAT UPON MY OWN DEAR MOTHER'S KNEE

from a collection of Utah Pioneer collected by the D.U.P. in 1930

I've a tender recollection that I'll cherish all my life
And time but makes it dearer day by day
And the memory of a mother whose smiles in days a-gone
Drove all my troubled childish thoughts away
I remember in the evening when the fire was burning bright
She'd call me to her side and say to me
Be brave my boy and truthful, and never be ashamed
Of the teachings that you learned on mother's knee

CHORUS:
She was gentle, and so kind
And I'll ever bear in mind
The many golden lessons she taught me
I have wealth and earthly power
Yet I'd give all for one hour
That I sat upon my dear old mother's knee

How her loving smile would cheer me when in evening I'd return
From toiling in the meadow all the day
Each gentle words of comfort but that voice is silent now
The mother that I loved has passed away
In the quiet village churchyard she has slumbered many years
And the only treasure life holds dear to me
In the mound that oft in the twilight I have moistened with my tears
And the lessons that I learned on mother's knee
(chorus)
