Our Heaven Is Our Home

1. Our heaven is our home,

Our place on earth to kneel,

Where nearest to our Father’s throne

We live and love and feel.

2. The gentle dew of grace

Rests on our morning prayer.

The soft light from our mother’s face

Reflects her constant care.

3. Like rainbows crowned with light

That promise glory soon,

The children fill the darkest night

With all the hope of noon.

4. The sunset’s golden rays

Glow in our father’s eyes:

His strengthened hands with prayer and praise

Hold firm our family ties.

5. Our heaven is our home,

Where miracles increase.

And where we hope our Christ may come

To bless us with his peace.
