1 Father of all, Thy care we bless,
Which crowns our families with peace:
From Thee they spring; and by Thy hand
They are and shall be still sustained.
2 To God, most worthy to be praised,
Be our domestic altars raised;
Who, Lord of heav'n, yet deigns to come
And sanctify our humblest home.
3 To Thee may each united house
Morning and night present its vows;
Our children these, the rising race,
Be taught Thy precepts and Thy grace.
4 So may each future age proclaim
The honors of Thy glorious Name,
And each succeeding race remove
To join the family above.
