1 I am thinking tonight of my old cottage home,
That stands on the brow of the hill,
Where in life's early morning I once loved to roam,
But now all is quiet and still!

Chorus:
O my old cottage home,
Standing down by the hill,
Where in life's early morning I once loved to roam,
But now all is quite and still!

2 Many years have gone by since in pray'r there I knelt,
With dear ones around the old hearth;
But my mother's sweet prayers in my heart still are felt,
I'll treasure them up while on earth! [Chorus]

3 One by one they have gone from the old cottage home,
On earth I shall see them no more;
But with them I shall meet round the beautiful throne,
Where partings will come never more. [Chorus]
