Thy Home Is With The Humble Lord


Thy home is with the humble, Lord!
The simple are the best;
Thy lodging is in child-like hearts;
Thou makest there thy rest.

Dear Comforter! eternal Love!
If thou wilt stay with me,
Of lowly thoughts and simple ways,
I’ll build a house for thee.

Who made this breathing heart of mine
But thou, my Heavenly Guest?
Let no one have it, then, but thee,
And let it be thy rest!
