    The Dearest Names

    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
