WE'RE HOMEWARD BOUND.

We're homeward bound, far out upon the billow,
Within my soul what glad'ning thoughts arise,
For soon I'll rest my head upon the pillow,
At home, dear home, beneath my native skies,
Our bark rides true and slow the heavy waves along
With lightning speed before the gale we sweep,
And proud our ship to bear us o'er the deep.
With lightning speed before the gale we sweep,
And proud our ship to bear us o'er the deep.

We're homeward bound, to use a thought consoling;
Upon the ocean many a weary day
We're tossed when tempests mountain high were rolling,
But thoughts of home have driven fear away.
We've crossed the ocean blue in search of pleasures new,
But where are hearts so warm the wide world o'er
As those we'll meet upon my native shore?
But where are hearts so warm the wide world o'er
As those we'll meet upon my native shore?

We're homeward bound, then banish every sorrow,
To-day no care or grief my heart shall know.
Sweet hope has kindly whispered that to-morrow
I'll meet the loved I left so long ago;
'Tis years since last we met, but love can ne'er forget
A welcome warm is mine from friends at home,
Then speed good ship, no more from them I'll roam;
A welcome worm is mine from friends at home.
Then speed good ship, no more from them I'll roam.
