THE SOLDIER'S HOME
2 O! joyful is the soldier's heart to be once more at home, To meet his wife and children dear and cease awhile to roam; What bliss beneath his cottage roof, with Hope and Love and cheer. To pass the happy moments by, with all that life holds dear.
3 But hark! the drum; it loudly beats upon the ear of night, It calls to arms! wake! comrade, wake! and rally for the fight! The soldier's joy is over now, for 'mid the battle's roar, 'Mid clanging steel and hissing ball, he sleeps for evermore.
