Where is My Wandering Boy To-night (1)

Where is my wandering boy to-night—
The boy of my tenderest care,
The boy that was once my joy and light,
The child of my love and prayer?
Oh, where is my boy to-night?
Oh, where is my boy to-night?
My heart o'erflows, for I love him, he knows;
Oh, where is my boy to-night?

Where is My Wandering Boy To-night (2)

Once he was pure as morning dew,
As he knelt at his mother's knee;
No face was so bright, no heart more true,
And none was so sweet as he.
 
 

Where is My Wandering Boy To-night (3)

Oh, could I see you now, my boy,
As fair as in olden time,
When prattle and smile made home a joy,
Any life was a merry chime!
