1 Oh, blest the house, whate'er befall,
Where Jesus Christ is all in all!
A home that is not wholly His--
How sad and poor and dark it is!
2 Oh, blest that house where faith is found
And all in hope and love abound;
They trust their God and serve Him still
And do in all His holy will!
3 Oh, blest the parents who give heed
Unto their children's foremost need
And weary not of care or cost.
May none to them and heav'n be lost!
4 Oh, blest that house; it prospers well.
In peace and joy the parents dwell,
And in their children's lot is shown
How richly God can bless His own.
5 Then here will I and mine to-day
A solemn promise make and say:
Though all the world forsake His Word,
I and my house will serve the Lord!
