The Dearest Names

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Tenderly

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
