1. Father of all, thy care we bless,

Which crowns our families with peace:

From thee they spring; and by thy hand

They are, and shall be still sustained.

2. To God, most worthy to be praised,

Be our domestic altars raised;

Who, Lord of heaven, yet deigns to come

And sanctify our humblest home.

3. To thee may each united house

Morning and night present its vows;

Our servants there, and rising race,

Be taught thy precepts and thy grace.

4. So may each future age proclaim

The honors of thy glorious name,

And each succeeding race remove

To join the family above.
