720. 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.
