655 ~ Happy the Home


Happy the home when God is there,
And love fills every breast;
When one their wish, and one their prayer,
And one their heavenly rest.


Happy the home where Jesus' name
Is sweet to every ear;
Where children early lisp His fame,
And parents hold Him dear.


Happy the home where prayer is heard,
And praise is wont to rise;
Where parents love the Sacred Word
And all its wisdom prize.


Lord, let us in our homes agree
This blessed peace to gain;
Unite our hearts in love to Thee,
And love to all will reign.
