Abstract

1. The dearest spot of earth to me Is Home ... sweet Home!

The fairyland I long to see Is Home! ... sweet Home!

There, how charm'd the sense of hearing!

There, where love is so endearing!

All the world is not so cheering As Home ... sweet Home

The dearest spot of earth to me Is Home ... sweet Home

The fairyland I long to see is Home sweet Home.

2. I've taught my heart the way to prize My Home ...sweet Home

I've learn'd to look with lover's eyes On Home ... sweet Home!

There where vows are truly plighted,

There, where hearts are so united,

All the world besides I've slighted

For Home ... sweet Home!

The dearest spot of earth to me Is Home ... sweet Home.

The fairyland I long to see is Home sweet Home.
