Bless My Home

Fill my home, dear Lord, I pray
With blessings from above,
But…most of all…I ask that it
Be always filled with love.

May those who step within my door
Find happy hearts inside,
And, Lord, please may my door and heart
Be ever open wide.

May all who gather round my hearth,
Find kindness glowing there,
And may each soul who dwells within,
Love and contentment share.

So, bless my home and bless each one
Who dwells or steps inside,
And may I find beneath my roof
That peace and joy abide.
