The Dearest Spot of Earth Is Home ~ A Hymn

The Family Gathering by Eugenio Zampighi

The dearest spot of earth to me
  Is home, sweet home!
The fairy land I long to see
  Is home, sweet home!
There how charmed the sense of hearing!
There where love is so endearing!
All the world is not so cheering
  As home, sweet home!

I've taught my heart the way to prize
  My home, sweet home!
I've learned to look with lover's eyes
  On home, sweet home!
There, where vows are truly plighted!
There, where hearts are so united!
All the world besides I've slighted
  For home, sweet home.

~W.T. Wrighton, Composer
1857
