654 - Lord, Bless Our Homes

Lord, bless our homes with peace and love and laughter,
With understanding and with loyalty.
May we together follow Christ the Master
And know the blessing of His sov’reignty.

May every heart receive His loving spirit
And know the truth that makes life truly free.
Then, in that spirit may we live united,
And find in God our deep security.

Forgive the hurts our selfishness inflicted
On these we love and those who love
us best.
Christ, heal the scars, and draw us
all together
In Him whose will is peace and joy
and rest.

Father, in gratitude for homes and loves ones,
We open now our hearts to all mankind.
Grant us Your spirit– love for one another–
So in Your peace may we our concord find.
