Bless this house, O Lord we pray, 
Make it safe by night and day . . . 

Bless these walls so firm and stout, 
Keeping want and trouble out . . . 

Bless the roof and chimneys tall, 
Let thy peace lie overall . . . 

Bless this door that it may prove, 
Ever open, 
To joy and love . . . 

Bless these windows shining bright, 
Letting in God's Heavenly light, 
Bless the hearth, the painting there, 
With smoke ascending like a prayer! 

Bless the folk who dwell within, 
Keep them pure and free from sin . . . 

Bless us all that we may be, 
Fit O Lord to dwell with thee . . . 

Bless us all that one day we may dwell, 
O Lord! With Thee!
