No Greater Work (Perry)


No Greater Work (Perry)

Solos to Sing, Submitted Music (1992-1997)

This is my home, my haven from the world,

Where little children watch in perfect trust.

They hear my words, they see the things I do,

And in my kind and gentle care they learn to love.

 

[Refrain]

This is my home, my heaven here on earh,

And in my heart I know there is no greater work.

 

This is my home, my refuge from the storm,

Where my companion waits to comfort me.

I offer strength and caring in return.

I give eternal love and pure fidelity.

 

This is my home, a place that I will share

With weak and weary ones who need my care.

And as I help each stranger in my way,

I know the Savior’s loving spirit will be there.

 

No greater work than this, No sweeter place to serve,

And in my heart I know there is no greater work.
