1 O love, divine and tender!
That through our homes doth move,
Veiled in the softened splendor
Of holy, household love;
A throne, without thy blessing,
Were labour without rest,
And cottages, possessing
Thy blessedness, are blest.
2 God bless these hands united,
God bless these hearts made one;
Unsevered and unblighted
May they through life go on;
Here, in earth's home preparing
For the bright home above,
And there, for ever sharing
Its joy, where "God is love."
