1. Precious mem’ries, unseen angels, Sent from somewhere to my soul; How they linger, ever near me, And the sacred past unfold.
Refrain: Precious mem’ries, how they linger, How they ever flood my soul; in the stillness of the midnight, Precious, sacred scenes unfold.
2. Precious father, loving mother, Fly across the lonely years; And old home scenes of my childhood, In fond memory appear.
3. As I travel on life’s pathway, Know not what the years may hold; As I ponder, hope grows fonder, Precious mem’ries flood my soul.
