HOME BY THE WAVE.
Copyright, 1880, by W. H Rieger.

Tis dear to the heart of the fisher so brave,
That sweet little home by the beautiful wave;
For there is the wife who awaits his return,
The star of affection that ever will burn.
Oh, far on the sea when the storm gathers wild,
Or billows are hushed like the sleep of a child,
He toileth 'till dawn, with a heart strong and brave,
And sweet is his rest in the home by the wave;
He toileth 'till dawn, with a heart strong and brave,
And sweet is his rest in the home by the wave.

Oh, there on the beach, when the sun glimmers red,
The fond kisses fall and the good-bye is said;
Then white flowing sails, like a bird just set free,
They waft him away to the wide, open sea.
But oft kneels his wife in that lone cottage home,
And breathes forth a prayer across yonder foam;
Oh, Father in heaven, my darling one save,
And bring him at dawn to his home by the wave.'
Oh, Father in heaven, ray darling one save,
And bring him at dawn to his home by the wave!

So day after day sees him toil o'er the foam,
With one guiding star-'tis the loved one at home;
And bright as the sky, when the waves are asleep,
The eyes that are watching for him o'er the deep.
Oh, joy be the lot of the lone fisher's wife,
When waves are at rest, or when they are at strife;
Oh, Father in heaven, her darling one save,
And bring him safe back to his home by the wave!
Oh, Father in heaven, her darling one save,
And bring him safe back to his home by the wave!
