Musings on … O Where is my Boy Tonight? by Robert Lowry

Standard

Where is my wandering boy tonight—
The boy of my tenderest care,
The boy that was once my joy and light,
The child of my love and prayer?

Refrain

O where is my boy tonight?
O where is my boy tonight?
My heart o’erflows, for I love him, he knows;
O where is my boy tonight?

Once he was pure as morning dew,
As he knelt at his mother’s knee;
No face was as bright, no heart more true,
And none was so sweet as he.

Refrain

O could I see you now, my boy,
As fair as in olden time,
When prattle and smile made home a joy,
And life was a merry chime!

Refrain

Go for my wandering boy tonight;
Go search for him where you will;
But bring him to me with all his blight,
And tell him I love him still.

Refrain

Gotta love this song… or hate it. I can just imagine hearing it being sung in church. Oh, my tears would flow.

When one has a prodigal….. one never knows what will make them cry…. I guess I can ask for prayer for my prodigal. Will you pray that he comes home?
