445. Happy the Home When God Is There

Text: Henry Ware, Jr., 1794-1843
Music: John B. Dykes, 1823-1876
Tune: ST. AGNES, Meter: CM

1.	Happy the home when God is there, 
	and love fills every breast; 
	when one their wish, and one their prayer, 
	and one their heavenly rest. 

2.	Happy the home where Jesus' name 
	is sweet to every ear; 
	where children early speak his fame, 
	and parents hold him dear. 

3.	Happy the home where prayer is heard, 
	and praise is wont to rise; 
	where parents love the sacred Word 
	and all its wisdom prize. 

4.	Lord, let us in our homes agree 
	this blessed peace to gain; 
	unite our hearts in love to thee, 
	and love to all will reign.
