Our House Becomes a Home

Print Share
    1. Our house becomes a home when it’s filled with charity,
    When caring loved ones always treat each other tenderly.
    Our house becomes a home when we live in harmony.
    Together we can make our house a home.
    A house has walls and windows; a home is something more—
    A smile in ev’ry corner, and love at ev’ry door.
    Our house becomes a home when there’s joy and gladness there,
    When cheerful voices greet us and sweet music fills the air.
    Our house becomes a home when there’s happiness to share.
    Together we can make our house a home.
    2. Our house becomes a home when we have the gospel light
    To lead us as a fam’ly in the way of truth and right.
    Our house becomes a home when the spirit’s burning bright.
    Together we can make our house a home.
    A house is built for shelter; a home is built inside
    When holy prophets teach us and Jesus is our guide.
    Our house becomes a home when we kneel in fam’ly prayer.
    We grow in faith with ev’ry sacred moment that we share.
    Our house becomes a home when we feel the Savior there.
    Together we can make our house a home.
