Hymn/Song Information

Happy home where Thou art loved and dear




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


O happy home, where two in heart united
In holy faith, and blessed 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
When 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 blessed home above,
From whence Thou earnest, where Thou hast ascended,
Thy everlasting home of peace and love !
