Title I Remember Him Singing
Description And he would rock me to sleep with his singing. I always think of him singing. He sang when the sun shone, he sang when it poured. He sang when a song was all he could afford. He took us to church, and he sang to the Lord. And we will never forget all his singing. Singing: "Oh, my Father, Thou that dwellest In that high and holy place, When shall I regain Thy presence, And again behold Thy face...." The earliest thing I recall is his singing. I always loved hearing his singing. As we sat 'round the campfire by a cool mountain stream, We would hear the night sounds creeping closer, it seemed; And he would gather us in with "A Coalminer's Dream", And calm all our fears with his singing. Singing! "Oh please, don't go to the mines today, For dreams have so often come true. Oh then, Daddy, dear Daddy, please don't go away. I never could live without you." I know where he is that he is singing. -25-
