A Prayer for the Home


God bless the corners of this house,

And be the lintel blest;

And bless the hearth and bless the board

And bless each place of rest;

And bless each door that opens wide

To stranger as to kin;

And bless each crystal window pane

That lets the starlight in;

And bless the rooftree overhead

And every sturdy wall,

The peace of man, the peace of God,

The peace of love on all.

-- Arthur Guiterman
