DEAR LITTLE HOME.
Copyright, 1894, by Widmer-Stigler Music Pub. Co.
Words by Thos. Naismyth. Music by Otto Henry.
There's a sweet little spot I need to call home-
What would I not give to be there?
To look, on those scenes so dear to my heart.
And oa them whose love I did share;
Sweet memories still will 'round my heart cling,
When I think of that sweet little home;
And I love to recall the dear ones it held,
Who are with me where'er I may roam.
Dear little home far over the sea,
How often I think of it still;
While into my heart steals a feeling so soft,
And a longing which nothing can All.
'Twas a bonnie, wee spot, that dear little home,
With flowers all 'round, sweet and fair,
Watched over And tended by mother so dear,
Who loved it and gave it her care,
But now all is changed, that loved mother's gone
To a home with her Father on high,
Where now she is waiting her dear ones to meet.
Some day in the sweet bye and bye.- Chorus.
Deep down in my heart there is always a love
For all those so near and so dear,
Who, though all scatter'd now, may soon again be
Toget her for many a year,
But, oh, give me back those bright, happy days.
And that dear little, sweet little home;
And a long, long look at dear faces and scenes
That are with me wherever I roam.- Chorus.
