Bless This House
Words & music By May H. Bray, Helen Taylor
Copyright: Copyright 1932, Boosey & Co. Ltd.

Bless this house, O Lord we pray,
Make it safe by night and day;
Bless these walls, so firm and stout,
Keep-ing want and trou-ble out,
Bless the roof and chim-neys tall,
Let Thy peace lie o-ver all;
Bless this door, that it may prove
E-ver o-pen to joy and love.
Bless these win-dows shi-ning bright,
Let-ting in God's heav'n-ly light;
Bless the hearth a-blaz-ing there,
With smoke as-cend-ding like a prayer;
Bless the peo-ple here with-in,
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 we one day
May dwell, O Lord, with Thee.

I think we need another copy of the lyrics without all those hyphens, so it can be found more easily with a search engine.

By the way, did anyone notice that the previous version spelled "ascending" with two D's?

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 over all;
Bless this door, that it may prove
Ever open to joy and love.
Bless these windows shining bright,
Letting in God's heav'nly light;
Bless the hearth a-blazing there,
With smoke ascending like a prayer;
Bless the people here 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 we one day
May dwell, O Lord, with Thee.
