The Little Home
Edgar Albert Guest
The little house is not too small
To shelter friends who come to call.
Though low the roof and small its space
It holds the Lord’s abounding grace,
And every single room may be
Endowed with happy memory.
The little house, severely plain,
A wealth of beauty may contain.
Within it those who dwell may find
High faith which makes for peace of mind,
And that sweet understanding which
Can make the poorest cottage rich.
The little house can hold all things
From which the soul’s contentment springs.
‘Tis not too small for love to grow,
For all the joys that mortals know,
For mirth and song and that delight
Which makes the humblest dwelling bright.
Even the plainest house can be beautiful, and the tiniest home can have a very big heart. Even if your rooms are small, keep the doors open wide! Love and happiness can find plenty of space to grow and flourish.
