Happy the home when God is there

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 used to rise; 

Where parents love the sacred 
That makes us truly wise.

Lord, let us in our homes agree,

This blessed peace to gain;

Until our hearts in love to Thee,

And love to all will reign.

–Henry Ware
