“A CHRISTIAN HOME”

O GIVE US HOMES BUILT FIRM UPON THE SAVIOR,

WHERE CHRIST IS HEAD AND COUNSELLOR AND GUIDE;

WHERE EVERY CHILD IS TAUGHT HIS LOVE AND FAVOR

AND GIVES HIS HEART TO CHRIST, THE CRUCIFIED:

HOW SWEET TO KNOW THAT THOUGH HIS FOOTSTEPS WAVER

HIS FAITHFUL LORD IS WALKING BY HIS SIDE!


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 LORD, OUR GOD, OUR HOMES ARE THINE FOREVER!

WE TRUST TO THEE THEIR PROBLEMS, TOIL, AND CARE;

THEIR BANDS 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.

(Barbara B. Hart)
