Send Your Children to Bed with a Kiss


Oh, mothers, so weary, discouraged,
Worn out with the cares of the day,

You often grow cross and impatient,
Complain of the noise and the play.


For the day brings many vexations,
So many things go amiss.

But, mothers, whatever may vex you,
Send the children to bed with a kiss.


The dear little feet often wander,
Perhaps from the pathways of right.

The dear little hands find new mischief
To try you from morning 'til night.


But think of the desolate mothers
Who'd give all the world for your bliss.

And as thanks for your infinite blessings,
Send the children to bed with a kiss.


For some day their noise will not vex you.
The silence will hurt you far more.

You will long for the sweet childish voices,
For a sweet childish face at the door.


And to press a child's face to your bosom,
You'd give all the world just for this.

For the comfort t'will give you in sorrow,
Send the children to bed with a kiss...
