1 Can a boy forget his mother's pray'r,
When he has wandered, God knows where?
It's down the path of death and shame,
But mother's pray'rs are heard the same!

Chorus:
Come back, my boy, come back, I say,
And travel in thy mother's way!
Come back, my boy, come back I say,
And travel in Thy mother's way!

2 Can a boy forget his mother's face,
Whose heart was kind and filled with grace?
Her loving voice it echoes sweet;
She waits, she longs her boy to meet! [Chorus]

3 Can a boy forget his mother's door,
From which he wandered years before?
With tears and sighs she said, "good-bye,
"Meet me, my boy, beyond the sky! [Chorus]

4 Can a boy forget that she is dead,
Tho' the many years have passed and fled?
Those tears, that pray'r, that sweet "Good-bye,"
She waits to welcome thee on high! [Chorus]
