Love at home



There is beauty all around, When there’s love at home; 
There is joy in every sound, When there’s love at home; 
Peace and plenty here abide, Smiling sweet on every 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 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.



Love becomes a way of life, When there’s love at home; 
Sweet, insistent end to strife, When there’s love at home; 
Glad submission each one’s gift, Willing pledge to love and lift, 
Healing balm for every rift, When there’s love at home. 

Love at home, love at home; 
Healing balm for every rift, 
When there’s love at home.


Anger cools and pressures cease, When there’s love at home; 
Children learn to live in peace, When there’s love at home; 
Courage to reach out in grace, Meet a stranger face to face, 
Find a reconciling place, When there’s love at home. 

Love at home, love at home; 
Find a reconciling place, 
When there’s love at home.



There’s no question you can’t ask, When there’s love at home; 
There is strength for any task, When there’s love at home; 
Sharing joy in work or play, Confidence to face the day, 
Knowing love will find a way, When there’s love at home.

Love at home, love at home; 
Knowing love will find a way, 
When there’s love at home.



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.

{"Love at Home", lyrics by John H. McNaughton}



This is has always been one of my favorite hymns--I listen to it often.  But as a mother, it has taken on a deeper meaning. It's a tender reminder of how important my role as a wife and mother is -- and that my family will be blessed if I strive daily to make our home a place of love, peace and tranquility. 

A place where they feel unconditional love, a respite from the world and closer to the Savior.
