Representative Text

1 Home, home, home!
Who does not long for home?
Tho’ we may stay
Far, far away,
We ever long for home.

2 Home, home, home!
Vision of peace, sweet home!
Midst toil and strife
Of daily life,
Our dream of rest is home.

3 Home, home, home!
Our childhood’s happy home!
O vision bright
Of joy and light,
Our dear departed home!

4 Home, home, home!
Our future happy home!
Oh, guide us right,
Thou one true light,
To our eternal home!
