Bless this House

Bless this house, O Lord we pray,
Make it safe by night and day ...

Bless these walls so firm and stout,
Keeping want and trouble out ...

Bless the roof and chimneys tall,
Let thy peace lie over all ...

Bless this door that it may prove,
Ever open to joy and love ...

Bless these windows shining bright,
Letting in God's heavenly light ...


Bless the hearth, the painting there,
With smoke ascending like a prayer!

Bless the folk who dwell within,
Keep them pure and free from sin ...


Bless us all that we may be,
Fit O Lord to dwell with thee ...

Bless us all that one day we may dwell
O Lord! With Thee!

Words and Music by Helen Taylor and May H. Morgan (a.k.a. Brahe), 1927
