My House



Will you build me a house,
A house that really will be mine?
Then let me give you my design:
A simple scheme of
The house I dream of.


Build my house of wood,
Build my house of stone,
Build my house of brick and mortar. 


Make the ceiling strong,
Strong against the storm,
Shelter when the days grow shorter.


But build my house of love,
And paint my house with trusting,
And warm it with the warmth of your heart.


Make the floor of faith,
Make the walls of truth,
Put a roof of peace above.
Only build my house of love.


--Leonard Bernstein
