Prayer for the Home

Beneath this roof let there abide,
Morning, noon and eventide,
Love and peace and sweet content.
Make this a realm where goodness flowers.
Let family prayers and story hours
Be highlights of each busy day.
Make tolerance and brotherhood,
For men of every race and creed,
Our aim in thought and word and deed.
Unite us firmly in our faith,
Make hope our beacon, bright, along the way.
Let Heaven ever be our goal,
And peace of mind and peace of soul
The treasure we hold dear, above all others.
Let Mother, Father, sisters, brothers
Unite their efforts, day and night,
To grow in wisdom and in light,
In Godliness and purity,
To make us one with those blessed three
Of the Holy Family!
