1 Lord of the home, the Son you love
Received a mother's tender care,
A father's strength like yours above,
A home with warmth and kindness there.
2 Help us, O Lord, our homes to make
Your Holy Spirit's dwelling-place;
Our hands and hearts' devotion take
To be the servants of your grace.
3 We pray that all who with us dwell
Your love and joy and peace may know.
And while our lips your praises tell,
May faithful lives your glory show.
4 Teach us to keep our homes so fair
That, were our Lord a child once more,
He might be glad our hearth to share
And find a welcome at our door.
5 Lord, may your Spirit sanctify
Each household duty we fulfill.
May we our Savior glorify
With glad obedience to your will.
