AN OLD FASHIONED MOTHER
Yes, they call her old-fashioned and all out of style,
Oh, but rouge has not clouded her wonderful smile;
For her hair is her glory, no scissors have shorn,
And her dress, plainly fashioned, in meekness is worn.
With th" glory of God her dear face is ashire,
Tho’ she’s all cut of date, this Old Mother O’ Mine;
For her sleeves are too long, her skirts are askew—
If we judge by the fashions imported and new.
She is humlile nnd true, this Old Mother O’ Mine,
And around her dear self some sweet memories twine.
O, I love her, adore her—Old-fashioned may be,
But in spite of it all, she is “Mother,” ’to me.
This Old Mother O’ Mine keeps her eyes on the Lord,
There is Nothing can weaken her faith in His word;
Kv’ry promise she tries is a bulwork of truth,
For she anchors her faith in the God of her youth.
She takes time to be holy, this hurrying age;
Has no time for late fiction but pores o’er the page,
She renounces the “flesh” has no creed, but the cross,
And in winning her crown, she counts all things but loss.
O, this old-fashioned mother has learned how to pray,
For the boy growing wild, or the girl gone astray;
"Thy house shall be saved,”’
She believes that the promises, “Thy
“ must ‘ be brave.
Must come true tho’ tlu
of the world
You dear laddies and lassies—at home or abroad—
Know this old-fashioned soul serves an old-fashioned God;
She is growing quite feeble, her hair has turned gray,
Why not write her a line ’ere they lay her away.
She has prayed for you long ’ere your feet went astray,
Make her glad that that prayer has been answered today.
What a joy, when the gates open wide by and by,
You may live with that old-fashioned mother for Aye.
