O  Holy  Spirit


O Holy Spirit, make this house

A home of love and prayer;

Bless all of us who live in it

And help us in each care.


O Holy Spirit, make this house

A home we all may prize;

A place of peace, of joy and rest:

An earthly Paradise!


O Holy Spirit, let not our love diminish

Or rust or fade with the years,

But let it gain in strength

From time, from laughter, joy and tears.
