Representative Text

1 Home from work the laborers
Come when day is ending,
When the dusky shades of night
With the light are blending.

[Refrain]
Home, sweet home,
Rest from weary labors
Home, sweet home,
How calm our rest shall be.

2 Home in quiet to enjoy
Blessings without number;
Then to trust the Father's care
O'er their peaceful slumber. [Refrain]

3 If so sweet the calm repose
Of an earthly even,
What when all life's labors close,
Will it be in heaven. [Refrain]
