1 Do they pray for me at home?
Do they ever pray for me,
When I ride the dark sea foam,
When I cross the stormy sea?
Oh, how oft in foreign lands,
As I see the bended knee,
Comes the thought at twilight hour,
Do they ever pray for me?

Refrain:
Do they ever, do they ever,
Do they ever pray for me at home?
Do they ever, do they ever,
Do they ever pray for me at home?

2 Do they pray for me at home,
When the summer birds appear?
Do they pray for me the while,
That my path may be less drear?
At the home of early youth,
Do they place the vacant chair,
Where my heart so oft returns,
To the lov’d ones gather’d there? [Refrain]

3 Do they pray for me at home,
When the winds of winter blow?
Do they pray for me with love,
As they watch the winter’s snow?
In the season’s chilly cold,
Are their hearts for me still warm?
As I cherish’d as of old,
Through the beating of the storm? [Refrain]
