Welcome Home

Welcome Home.

WELCOME home! thou long-lost rover,
Welcome, welcome, welcome home!
All our doubts and fears are over,
Dearest one at last thou’rt come;
Oh, how we have yearn’d to greet thee,
Many a long and weary day,
And our hearts went forth to meet thee
When thou still wert far away.
Welcome home, welcome home, welcome home.

Many years have glided o’er thee,
Since thou bad’st thy long adieu,
And the gallant ship that bore thee
Faded in th’ horizon blue;
Oft we’ve thought on that sad parting,
Seal’d by many a fervent prayer,
Oft we’ve felt the tear-drop starting
When we viewed the vacant chair,

Welcome home! thou long lost rover,
Welcome, welcome, welcome home!
All our anxious fears are over,
And thou ne’er again shalt roam:
Now away with thoughts of sadness,
Let them slumber in the past;
For our hearts are fill’d with gladness,
Dearest one thou’rt come at last.
