I’ve wander’d far from those I love, and many years have pass’d,
Since in my dear old cherish’d home I saw their faces last;
But now I am returning and my journey soon will end,
I’ll join the throng where happy smiles and gentle voices blend.
Farewell, farewell! Ev’ry cloud of sorrow,
All my heart is fill’d with joy
For I’ll be home to-morrow!
