"Home"

"It's ten weary years since I left England's shore
For a distant far country to roam
How I long to return to my own native land
To my friends and the old folks at home
Last night as I slumbered I had a strange dream
A dream that brought distant lands near
I dreamt of old England, the land of my birth
The heart of her sons ever dear

While the joyous bells rang as I wended my way
To the house where I lived as a boy
I passed by the window and there sat by the fire
Were my parents, my heart filled with joy
The log burnt so brightly it was keeping them warm
On a night that could banish all sin
And the bells they were ringing, the old year out
And the new year in

At the door of the house there we stood face to face
For the first time in ten weary years
Soon the past was forgot, and we stood hand in hand
Father, mother and wanderer in tears
And the log burnt so brightly, it was keeping us warm
On a night that would banish all sin
And the bells they were ringing, the old year out
And the new year in

And the bells they were ringing, the old year out
And the new year in
