ANGEL MOTHER WAITS FOR ME
Far away there is a home so dear,
Where now my heart oft longs to be,
Still its gentle words in dreams I hear,
And still its loving smiles I see;
By the window in that cottage home,
Far across the weary sea,
Sad and lonely while my footsteps roam,
My angel mother waits for me!
Angel mother waits for me,
Afar across the weary sea;
Soon I'll fondly wander back again-
Angel mother waits for me!
Long ago her parting words she breathed,
And gave her blessing to her child;
'Neath the little porch with woodbine wreathed,
I see her standing calm and mild.
How I long to clasp her to my breast
And by her side to ever be,
In that little home of peace and rest-
My angel mother waits for me!-Chorus.
Blessings be upon her evermore,
And heaven keep her in its care;
Soon the ocean I shall wander o'er,
The loving joys of home to share.
Welcome kisses wait for my return,
And there my heart shall ever be,
Watching lonely, while her heart doth yearn-
Mv angel mother waits for me!-Chorus.
