A Christian Home

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
