    Love at Home

    Fervently

    1. 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.

    2. 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 bloom beneath 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.

    3. Kindly heaven smiles above

    When there’s love at home;

    All the world 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.
