The House that Sits Right Here 



There is a house in Tennessee that sits on land so grand 
With rolling hills and daffodils and greenery all around 
Reason's I'd like to be there in a surrounding so serene 
Is the peace and quiet I will find in the soft, warm, gentle breeze 
A breeze that blows sweet honey suckle perfume into the air 
And tempts the child within my heart to pluck one resting there 
So I approach the vine carefully moving on quiet feet 
And with cautious fingers, one I pick and taste its necter oh so sweet 
In the distance I see the hawk that flies above so high 
His wing span spreading oh so wide as his red tail dots the sky 
And the sky is such an alluring blue that I have to squint my eyes 
With cotton clouds that drift along, over the hill's steep rise 
The dusk moves in gracefully as the sun sinks over the hill 
Turning the sky to a bright, orange glow as the shadows do creep in 
Within the light that lingers I spy approaching deer 
As they wander down to lick the salt I left there in the field 
Darkness has taken over with its bright stars up above 
Splendor of trillions splashed against a dark canvas sky 
Gives wonder for me to think of God's adoration for all 
How unconditionally, with great abundance He gives to each of us 
Well, the air is getting chilly and it is time to build a fire 
As we join hands go inside my heart fills with sweet desire 
With you beside me so alive, I know not any fear 
As we retire inside a house, the house that sits right here
