1. 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.
  2. Happy the home where Jesus’ name
    is sweet to every ear;
    where children early speak 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 all its wisdom prize.
  4. 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.
