1 Our Father, by whose name
All fatherhood is known,
In love divine you claim
Each fam'ly as your own.
Bless mothers, fathers, guarding well,
With constant love as sentinel,
The homes in which your people dwell.
2 O Christ, yourself a child
Within an earthly home,
With heart still undefiled
You did to manhood come.
Our children bless in ev'ry place
That they may all behold your face
And, knowing you, may grow in grace.
3 O Holy Spirit, bind
Our hearts in unity,
And teach us how to find
The love from self set free.
In all our hearts such love increase
That ev'ry home by this release
May be the dwelling-place of peace.
