A Christian Home

O give us homes with godly fathers, mothers, Who always place their hope and trust in Him; Whose tender patience turmoil never bothers, Whose calm and courage trouble cannot dim; A home where each finds joy in serving others, and love still shines, tho’ days be dark and grim.

O give us homes where Christ is Lord and Master, The Bible read, the precious Psalms still sung; Where pray’r comes first in peace or in disaster, And praise is natural speech to ev’ry tongue; Where mountains move before a faith that’s vaster, And Christ sufficient is for old and young.

O Lord, our God, our homes are Thine forever! We trust to Thee their problems, toil, and care; Their bonds of love no enemy can sever, If Thou art always Lord and Master there: Be Thou the center of our least endeavor, Be Thou our Guest, our hearts and homes to share.
