926. L. M. Scott. Family Religion.
1 Where'er the Lord shall build my house,
An altar to his name I'll raise;
There, morn and evening, shall ascend
The sacrifice of prayer and praise.
2 With duteous mind, the social band
Shall search the records of thy law;
There learn thy will, and humbly bow
With filial reverence and awe.
3 Here may he fix his sacred seat,
And spread the banner of his love;
Till, ripened for a happier state,
We meet the family above.
