134. Mother and Home

1 Shining afar, in all corners of earth,
Gleam the bright home-fires where love has its birth;
Travelers weary oft see from afar
Visions of home, and affection’s bright star.

Mother and home!
Mother and home!
Words full of meaning, wherever we roam;
Mother and home;
Mother and home!
Both ever dear to us, mother and home.

2 Children so merry, with laughter and song,
Pass the bright years of their home life along;
Gathering mem’ries to brighten the day
When from the old home they’re far, far away. [Chorus]

3 Year after year, as we journey through life,
Visions of childhood e’er shines thro’ the strife;
Mem’ry turns back to our happiest days,
Mother and home! whom our hearts ever praise. [Chorus]
