In the Window a Light I Can see.
Copyright, 1887, by T. B. Harms & Co.

O'er the proud swelling sea, with my heart light and free,
And my thoughts drifting back to my home,
Many years they have past since our good ship was cast
A wreck on the ocean alone.
I was only a boy, a fond mother's joy,
Who lives in a cot by the sea;
And as homeward I go, my heart tells me so,
In the window a light I can see.

In the window a light I can see burning bright,
It fills me with joy and with glee;
From old cottage home ne'er again will I roam-
In the window a light I can see.

Oh, it seems but a day since I sailed far away,
And kissed my dear mother good-bye.
With her arms 'round my neck, as we stood on the deck,
Our flag waving proud to the sky.
Oh, promise, she said, with her hands on my head,
You'll be all that I wish you to be!
And returning with joy, brings me back a boy-
In the window a light I can see.-Chorus.

Now at last I am here, but with sad, silent tear,
My heart sinks within me like lead;
I knock on the door, but she answers no more,
My fond loving mother is dead.
In heaven above I shall meet her in love,
As an angel her face I can see;
In a mansion on high, like a star in the sky,
In the window a light I can see.-Chorus.
