Happy The Home When God Is There
Author: Henry Ware, the younger
1. Happy the home when God is there,
And love fills every breast;
Where one their wish, and one their prayer,
And one their heavenly rest.
2. Happy the home where Jesus' name
Is sweet in every ear;
Where children early lisp His fame,
And parents hold Him dear.
3. Happy the home where prayer is heard
And praise is wont to rise;
Where parents love the sacred word,
And live but for the skies.
4. Lord! let us in our home agree,
This blessed peace to gain;
Unite our hearts in love to Thee,
And love to all will reign.
