1 We've longed to see you nightly,
But this night of all; The fire was blazing brightly
And lights were in the hall. The little ones were up
'Till 'twas ten o'clock and past, Then their eyes began to twinkle,
And they've gone to sleep at last; But they listened for your voice
Till they thought you'd never come; Oh! Willie we have missed you;
Welcome, welcome home!
2 The days were sad without you,
Thcnights long and drear; My dreams have been about you;
Oh! welcome, Willie dear! Last night I wept and watched
By the.moonlight's cheerless ray, 'Till I thought I heard your foot step.
Then I wiped my tears away; But my heart grew sad again
When I found you had not come;- Oh! Willie, we have missed you;
Welcome, welcome home!
