651 - Happy the Home That Welcomes You

Happy the home that welcomes You, Lord Jesus,
Truest of friends, most honored guest
of all,
Where hearts and eyes are bright with joy to greet You,
Your lightest wished eager to fulfill.

Happy the home where man and wife together
Are of one mind believing in Your love
Through love and pain, prosperity and hardship,
Through good and evil days Your care they prove.

Happy the home, O loving Friend
of children,
Where they are giv’n to You with hands of prayer,
Where at Your feet they early learn
to listen
To Your words and thank You for
Your care.
