Love at Home

Love at Home

There is beauty all around, when there’s love at home;
There is joy in ev’ry sound, when there’s love at home;
Peace and plenty here abide, Smiling sweet on ev’ry side,
Time doth softly, sweetly glide, when there’s love at home,
Love at home, love at home; Time doth softly, sweetly glide,
When there’s love at home.



In the cottage there is joy, when there’s love at home;
Hate and envy ne’er annoy, when there’s love at home;
Roses blossom ‘neath our feet, all the earth‘s a garden sweet.
Making life a bliss complete, when there’s love at home,
Love at home, love at home; Making life a bliss complete.
When there’s love at home.
 
Kindly heaven smiles above, when there’s love at home;
All the earth is filled with love, when there’s love at home;
Sweeter sings the brooklet by, Brighter beams the azure sky;
Oh, there’s One who smiles on high, when there’s love at home;
Love at home, love at home; Oh, there’s One who smiles on high,
When there’s love at home.

Jesus, show thy mercy mine, Then there is love at home;
Sweetly whisper “I am thine”, Then there is love at home;
Source of love, thy cheering light Far exceeds the sun so bright
Can dispel the gloom of night, Then there’s love at home
Love at home, Love at home

Can dispel the gloom of night

Then there’s love at home


Old hymnals are full of rich imagery and poetry and Love at home is just such a find in the Church and Sunday School Hymnal Supplement, Mennonite Publishing House Scottdale PA. 1911 #444.
