God Give Us Homes!


God Give Us Homes!

Homes where the Bible is honored and taught;
Homes with the Spirit of Christ in their thought; 
Homes that a likeness to heaven have caught. God give us homes! 

God give us homes! 
Homes with the father in priest-like employ; 
Homes that are bright with a far-reaching joy;
Homes where no worldly stain shall come to annoy. 
God give us homes!

God give us homes!
Homes where the mother is queen-like in love;
Ruled in the fear if the Savior above;
Homes that to youth most inspiring shall prove. 
God give us homes!

God give us homes!
Homes with the children to brighten the hours;
Budding and blooming like beautiful flowers;
Places of sunshine-sweet, sanctified bowers. 
God give us homes!

  • May we as the women of God be the servants He has designed to use! Growing and becoming True Keepers of the home.
    I have learned what powerful infuence we Momma’s truly hold!
    Blessings, Roxy
