2 Jesus, for Thy love most tender,

On the Cross for sinners shown,
We would praise Thee, and surrender

All our hearts to be Thine own.
With so blest a Friend provided,

We upon our way would go,
Sure of ng safely guided,

Guarded well from every foe.

3 Every day will be the brighter,

When Thy gracious face we see; Every burden will be lighter,

When we know it comes from Thee. Spread Thy love's broad banner o'er us,

Give us strength to serve and wait,
Till Thy glory break before us,
Through the city's open gate. Amen.

2 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!
3 O hapry 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!
4 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!
5 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,
6 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! Amen.

2 'Tis hard to take the burden up,

When these have laid it down;
They brightened all the joy of life,

They softened every frown:
But oh, 'tis good to think of them,

When we are troubled sore;
Thanks be to God that such have been,

Although they are no more.

3 More homelike seems the vast unknown,

Since they have entered there;
To follow them were not so hard,

Wherever they may fare;
They cannot be where God is not,

On any sea or shore;
Whate'er hetides, Thy love abides,
Our God, for evermore. Amen.
