Little House

In heaven there are many mansions
Each and every one is sparkling new
But I don't need a great big mansion
Just a little house will do

Just let me be with Jesus
When my time on earth is through
No, I don't need a fancy mansion
Just a little house will do

Yes, a little house in heaven
In some corner tucked away
Where I can see the master
And be with him every day

Where we can walk the streets of gold
Together as each day begins anew
No, I don't need a mansion
Just a little house will do

If I've earned a home in heaven
When my life on earth is through
If I'm judged and then found worthy
To receive the reward I'm due
If you tell me welcome home my son
Here's your mansion bright and new
God, I don't need a mansion
Just a little house will do

Thank you for writing and sharing this. My father, my hero, is almost finished his Earthly life. I am assisting my family in planning his funeral and, among other things, I have been tasked with finding a suitable poem for his memorial card, and your poem touched my heart and my soul. The picture you paint perfectly describes my father's simple grace. God bless you. :-)
