Lyrics

  1. 1. I know a name, a glorious name,
    Dearer than any other.
    Listen, I'll whisper the name to you:
    It is the name of mother.
    Mother, so tender and kind and true,
    I love you, I love you.
    Mother, so tender and kind and true,
    I love you.
  2. 2. I know a name, a glorious name,
    Dearer than any other.
    Listen, I'll whisper the name to you:
    It is the name of father.
    Father, so noble and brave and true,
    I love you, I love you.
    Father, so noble and brave and true,
    I love you.
  3. Words and music: Frances K. Taylor, 1870-1952
