Sounds of Home – Spring

Welcome to the first installment of Sounds of Home

Get ready to sing!

Song of Home

Sing a song by the fire, chant it sweet and low;
Sing of love, hope, desire, as the embers glow.
Harmony rich and warm, cadence loud and strong,
Melody full of charm, beautiful our song;
Sing of work, sing of friends, sing of those who roam;
But before singing ends, sing a song of home.

Sing a song with the earth, sing with meadows gay,
With the fields sing with mirth, merry roundelay.
Sing with hills in the sun, forests cool and dim,
When the long day is done, join the evening hymn;
Sing above ocean’s roar, with the spraying foam;
But before songs are o’er, sing a song of home.

Text: Ellen J. Lorenz

Music: Largo from New World Symphony by Antonín Dvořák

    I’m so glad that I finally got the chance to listen to this debut podcast! Thanks so much to Molly, Chris, Liz and Carl. I, too, sang along with Song of Home, a song that I really love. Also, such a nice addition to hear the birds singing. I’m excited to hear the next podcast!
