Father, Dear Father Come Home With Me Now
Father, dear father, .come home with me 11ow! The clock in the steeple strikes one. You said }'OU w ere coming right home from the shop As soon as your day's work was done. Our fir e has gone out, our house is all dark, And mother' s been watching since tea, W ith poor brother B enny, so sick in her arms, And no one to help her hut me. Come home, come home, come home/ Please, fath er, dear father, come home/ Hear the sweet voice of the child, W hich the night-'Winds repeat as they roam/ Oh, w ho could resist thfr most plai11tive of pray'rs'! Please father, dear fath er, come home! Father, dear father , come home with me now/ The clock in the steeple strikes two; T he night has grown colder, and Benny is worse– B ut he has been calling for you. Indeed he is worse-Ma says he will die– Perhaps before morning shall dawn ; And this is the message she sent me to bring– " Come quickly, or he will be gone."
Come home I come home I come home! Please fat her, dear fat her, come hom.e !
