Our love is homegrown, simple and sweet,
Dusted with the patter of little feet.
Let it grow tall, touch the sky
In the warmth of summer, in the wind and the rain.

And I’d rather be here, rather be here
Than anywhere else in the world.

You can’t manufacture love like this
In a plastic package of domestic bliss.
No, we grow in batches small and slow,
Formed by little moments infused with grace.

Let the fruit of our love last through the winter.
Store it in jars; place in the cellar.
It will sustain us when the nights grow long,
As we tell the stories of better days to come.

May the Father be welcomed here
To tend his harvest in our hearts and homes.
May the hungry come in from the fields
And feast at the table he will provide.
