Think of th many children now
Poor little boys an' girls
Who once't had Mothers lov'in hand
To soothe their golden curls
Who once had Mothers lov'in hand
To soothe their golden curls
Who once't had Mothers lov'in hand
To soothe their golden curls

O Father, every orphant bless
Wherever they may roam

An' bless th orphants home
Bless ever hand that leads them aid
An' bless th orphants home

An' bless th orphants home

Saviour, lead them by th hand
Saviour, lead them by th hand
Saviour, lead them by th hand
Till they all reach th golden strand
