What is Home Without a Father? was the song sung by Marie Olson in Speak No Evil. It was written in 1854, with words and music by Louis S. D. Rees.

The full lyrics are:

What is home without a father, When our daily race is run, And around the hearth we gather! ’Tis a world without the sun! Is there real wealth in treasure; Though its richest gifts we share? Is there real joy in pleasure, If his light be wanting there! Ah! no:

CHORUS 1: For a home without a father, When our daily race is run; And around the hearth we gather, Is a world without the sun.

What is home without a father, In the dark and cloudy day! Is it home? or is it rather But the guesthouse where we stay? Oh! his kindly voice can cheer us In affliction’s saddest hour; And to feel that he is near us Robs distress of half its power. Ah! yes:

CHORUS 2: But a home without a father, In the dark and cloudy day;— Is it home? or is it rather But the guesthouse where we stay?
