Twilight is stealing over the sea,
Shadows are falling dark on the lea;
Borne on the nightwinds, voices of yore,
Come from the far off shore.


Far away beyond the starlit skies,
Where the lovelight never, never dies;
Gleameth a mansion filled with delight,
Sweet, happy home so bright.

Voices of loved ones! songs of the past,
Still linger round me while life shall last
Lonely I wander, sadly I roam,
Seeking that far off home.


Come in the twilight, come, come to me,
Bringing some message over the sea;
Cheering my pathway, while here I roam,
Seeking that far off home.
