SHRINE OF HOME

There’s a sacred institution

That’s the star of this important poem;

A place welcoming you with open arms

—It’s called the Shrine of Home.

The Home is the first Family Altar

Where God had fellowship sweet;

Where personal prayers are offered

And with the Family, God can meet.

It’s a place of warmth and welcome

Offering a special Healing balm;

The model God himself instituted first

—It’s called the Shrine of Home.
