My Old Cottage Home

 

[F#]I am thinking tonight of an [B]old cottage home

That [F#]stands on the brow of the [C#]hill

Where in [F#]life's early morning I [B]once loved to roam

But [F#]now all is [C#]quiet and [F#]still

 

[F#]Oh my old cottage home my [B]old cottage home

[F#]That stands on the brow of the [C#]hill

Where in [F#]life's early morning I [B]once loved to roam

But [F#]now all is [C#]quiet and [F#]still

Many years have gone by since in prayer there I knelt

With dear ones around the old hearth

But my mother's sweet prayers in my heart still are felt

I'll treasure them awhile on earth

 

One by one they have gone from the old cottage home

On earth we shall see them no more

But we'll meet them again on that beautiful shore

Where partings will come never more
