627. Happy the home when God is there

1 Happy the home when God is there,
And love fills ev'ry breast:
When one their wish, and one their prayer,
And one their heav'nly rest.

2 Happy the home where Jesus' name
Is sweet to ev'ry 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,
That makes us truly wise.

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.
