Little Old German Home Across the Sea.
Copyright, 1877, by W. R. Dehnhoff.
Soon I will leave thee, my dear German home;
In a new land afar off a stranger I'll roam -
Away from the friends who have loved me so dear,
But, though for away, in my heart ever near.
My Old German home on the banks of the Rhine,
May the sun of prosperity on it brightly shineI'm going to leave thee, afar off to roam,
But I'll never forget my old German home.
I see around me those friends, kind and true,
Who have loved me since childhood; 'tis hard to leave you-
Soon I will come back to this good home once more;
May prosperity attend you as in days of yore!- Chorus.
