I'm thinking tonight of my old cottage home;
On earth I will see them no more.
But with them I shall meet on that beautiful shore,
Where parting will come never more.

Chorus: Oh, my old cottage home
That stands on the brow of the hill,
Where in life's early morning I once loved to roam,
Though now all is quiet and still.

Many years have gone by since in prayer there we knelt
With loved ones around the old hearth.
The sweet prayers of my mother, my heart oft I've felt;
I'll treasure them up while on earth.
