The Dearest Names

35395, Children's Songbook, Home and Family, The Dearest Names, 208

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. 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.

Words and music: Frances K. Taylor, 1870–1952
