Verse 1: When the shades of night are falling, Bringing tho’ts our hearts appalling; Voices from the darkness calling, Bring to us sweet tho’ts of home.
Verse 2: When our earthly homes are broken, And our last farewells are spoken, Precious hope then bears a token, Tho’ts of home, sweet tho’ts of home.
Verse 3: Onward thru this world we wander, Shattered dreams and partings ponder, Heav’nly home just over yonder, Tho’ts of home, sweet tho’ts of home.
Chorus: Tho’ts of home the wand’rer cheering, Ships into the port are steering, Tho’ts of home with hopes endearing, Tho’ts of home, sweet tho’ts of home.
