Happy the Home When God Is There
The United Methodist Hymnal Number 445
Text: Henry Ware, Jr., 1794-1843
Music: John B. Dykes, 1823-1876
Tune: ST. AGNES,
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.
