1.
Do they think of me at home,
Do they ever think of me?
I who shared their ev'ry grief,
I who mingled in their glee?
Have their hearts grown cold and strange,
To the one now doom'd to roam?
I would give the world to know
Do they think of me at home?

2.
Do they think of me at eve,
Of the song I used to sing?
Is the harp I struck untouch'd,
Does a stranger wake the string?
Will no kind forgiving word,
Come across the raging foam?
Shall I never cease to sigh
"Do they think of me at home?"

3.
Do they think of how I loved,
In my happy, early days?
Do they think of him who came,
But could never win theur praise?
I am happy by his side,
And from mine he'll never roam.
But my heart will sadly ask,
"Do they think of me at home?"
