Hymn/Song Information

O happy home where Thou art loved




O happy home,
where Thou art loved the dearest,
Thou loving Friend
and Savior of our race,
And where among the guests
there never cometh
One who can hold such high
and honored place!


O happy home, where
two in heart united
In holy faith and
blessèd hope are one,
Whom death a little
while alone divideth,
And cannot end
the union here begun!


O happy home, whose
little ones are given
Early to Thee, in
humble faith and prayer,
To Thee, their Friend,
Who from the heights of Heaven
Guides them, and guards
with more than mother’s care!


O happy home,
where each one serves Thee, lowly,
Whatever his appointed work may be,
Till every common task
seems great and holy,
When it is done, O Lord, as unto Thee!


O happy home,
where Thou art not forgotten,
Where joy is overflowing,
full and free,
O happy home,
where every wounded spirit
Is brought, Physician,
Comforter, to Thee—


Until at last, when earth’s day’s work
is ended,
All meet Thee in
the blessèd home above,
From whence Thou camest,
where Thou hast ascended,
Thy everlasting home
of peace and love!


---Alternative verses---


O happy home where
Thou art loved most dearly,
Thou faithful Friend
and Savior full of grace,
And where among
the guests there never cometh
One who can hold
such high and honored place!


O happy home
where all, in heart united,
In holy faith
and blessed hope are one,
Whom bitter death
a little while divideth,
Yet cannot end
the union here begun!


O happy home
where two, in heart united,
In holy faith, are clinging unto Thee;
Where both,
to Thee a joyful service bringing,
Hear and obey
Thy voice most willingly;


Where both, to Thee
in truth forever cleaving,
In joy, in grief,
make Thee their only Stay
And fondly hope
in Thee to be believing
Both in the good and in the evil day.


O happy home
whose little ones are given
Early to Thee
in humble faith and prayer,
To Thee, their Friend,
who from the heights of heaven
Guides them and guards
with more than mother's care!


O happy home
where each one serves Thee, lowly,
Whatever his appointed work may be,
Till every common task
seems great and holy
When it is done,
O Lord, as unto Thee!


O happy home
where Thou art not forgotten
When joy is overflowing,
full, and free!
O happy home
where every wounded spirit
Is brought, O great Physician,
unto Thee,


Until at last,
when earthly toil is ended,
All meet Thee in
the blessed home above,
From whence Thou camest,
where Thou hast ascended,
Thine everlasting
home of peace and love!
