Suggested Tune: FULDA (LM) - attributed to William Gardiner

1. We all should have a place called home
a place to shelter from the storm
We all should be in family
where we are loved and safe and warm

2. And some have all these things they need
and some have all they need and more
but there are those who have much less -
the ones we label as being poor 

3.  If in our wealth we show no care
for those who have not what they need
if we have much and do not share
how wretched is our poverty

4. When we don't share what we call wealth
then wealth is lost to all of us
if all we've gained from all we've gained
is interest on our avarice.

5.  So let us be a family
where we can all be loved, belong,
be rich in sharing, caring joy
and be at home, content, as one.
