1 Oh, blessed home, where man and wife
Together lead a godly life,
By love their faith confessing!
There many a happy day is spent;
There Jesus gladly will consent
To tarry with his blessing,
To tarry with his blessing.
2 If they have given him their heart,
The place of honor set apart
For him each night and morrow,
Then he the storms of life will calm,
Will bring for ev'ry wound a balm,
And change to joy their sorrow,
And change to joy their sorrow.
3 Oh, Lord, we come before your face,
In ev'ry home bestow your grace
On children, father, mother.
Relieve their wants; their burdens ease.
Let them together dwell in peace
And love for one another,
And love for one another.
