The dearest spot on earth to me
    Is Home, sweet Home!
The fairy land 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!

I’ve taught my heart the way to prize
    My Home, sweet Home!
I’ve learned 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!

attr. William Thomas Wrighton
