1 O God, who to a loyal home
Didst trust Thy Son divine,
Where faithful love and patient work
Made daily life benign;
With contrite shame Thy grace we claim
And lift to Thee our prayer;
Redeem our oft unworthy homes
Till all is Christ-like there.
2 Deliver us from sins which harm
Our homes, and mar their peace.
May selfless and devoted love
Make strife and discord cease.
With anxious zeal, for mankind’s weal
And worldwide peace we pray,
But all in vain, if wayward homes
Cause childhoods steps to stray.
3 Thou art our Father, and from Thee
All faithful families spring;
To homes where love and honor dwell
Thou dost Thy blessing bring.
O God of love, send from above
Thy succor, swift and strong,
That from such homes stout souls may come
To triumph over wrong.
4 We pray that childhood’s latent pow'rs
May grow to bless mankind;
That we may guide aright young lives,
For unguessed good designed.
O Father God, whose Son has trod
Such lowly paths as we,
Help us to build on earth true homes,
Till we come home to Thee.
