The snow covered mountain in the distance
Brings memories of my home so far away;
Where often round the fireside we gathered
At the closing of a frosty winter's day.

It was mother's voice that led us in the singing,
While sister played the organ sweet and low;
As our childish voices blended with the music
In singing songs from out the long ago.

'Twas not many years before we all were parted
Each one to travel on his chosen way;
Some chose the quiet of the stately mountains
But I, the city's life that seemed so free and gay.

But so often in the city I grow restless
And in the park I wander to and fro;
The lights shine dimly on the water
Reminding me of moonlight on the snow.

As colors of a fading winter's sunset
Still linger in the sky at eventide,
To my heart there comes a tender cry and longing
For that dear old home high on the mountain side.
