'MID PLEASURES AND PALACES THOUGH
WE MAY ROAM,
BE IT EVER SO HUMBLE, THERE'S
NO PLACE LIKE HOME:
A CHARM FROM THE SKY SEEMS
TO HALLOW US THERE,
WHICH SEEK THROUGH THE WORLD,
IS NE'ER MET WITH ELSEWHERE.

HOME, HOME, SWEET, SWEET HOME,
BE IT EVER SO HUMBLE,
THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME.

 

AN EXILE FROM HOME, PLEASURE
DAZZLES IN VAIN,
OH: GIVE ME MY LOWLY THATCHED
COTTAGE AGAIN,
THE BIRDS SINGING GAILY, THAT
CAME AT MY CALL;
GIVE ME THEM, WITH THAT PEACE
OF MIND DEARER THAN ALL.

HOME, HOME, SWEET, SWEET HOME,
BE IT EVER SO HUMBLE,
THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME.

Comments:
It is not known how this bookmark is signed.
The body of the bookmark is identical to this other Home Sweet Home bookmark (sb980), other than the decoration at the pointed end.
The design on the pointed end however is identical to sb528 - Christmas / A blithe and joyous (robin and ribbon from branch with words: 'A merry Christmas to you').
As both these reference bookmarks are known to have been made by STEVENS, there can hence be no doubt this bookmark was also made by STEVENS.
