Welcome, mother! now I greet thee
Can I all my feelings tell?
How this heart has longed to meet thee,
Since my lips breathed out, "Farewell!"
Welcome, mother! while I press thee
Fondly to my youthful heart,
Every word I speak will bless thee,
While I know how dear thou art.
Welcome, mother! I have often
Traced thine image in my dreams;
Memory's touch the spell would soften,
Dressing life in golden beams.
Lone, forsaken— 'midst the smiling,
Longing for some absent one,
I have stood—one thought beguiling,
'Twas the thought of thee, alone.
Welcome, mother! life's before me,
Days of sunshine and of tears.
Yet, with thy fond guidance o'er me,
Joy may smile in after years.
I have cherished, dearly cherished
All the lessons given me;
Every prayer my bosom nourished
Has been fraught with love to thee.
