Words by George Cooper. Music by J. P. Skelly.

The world has many joys in store,
Though fleeting they may be;
We live its pleasures o'er and o'er,
Its clouds and sunshine see.
But there is still one hallowed place,
No matter where we roam;
And time can ne'er this truth efface,
Where mother is, is home.

Where mother is, is home,
She'll cheer you when you come;
Forever true her heart is to you,
Where mother is, that's home.

Though other scenes may bring delight,
And lure us for awhile;
We miss one face so dear and bright,
One sweet and loving smile.
And when in life we're tempest tost,
No star in yonder dome;
One hope is left though all be lost,
Where mother is, is home.- Chorus.

Then fold her fondly to your breast,
And smooth her pathway here;
Her smile can bid our sorrow rest,
And make our life still dear.
Oh! gentle thought amid our care,
While here on earth we roam;
Though joy or pain the heart may share,
Where mother is, is home.-Chorus.
