Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Approach dear youth, unto the Lord

Approach dear youth, unto the Lord

Representative Text

1 Approach dear youth unto the Lord,
To hear and learn his holy word:
That sacred word, which God has giv'n,
That word which shew the way to heav'n.

2 Attend and hear, O! precious youth,
O! hear and learn the word of truth,
O! learn to fear and love your God,
Who sav'd you with the Saviour's blood.

3 Pray that the Lord may govern you,
In all you wish, think, say or do;
And let it be your care and aim,
To glorify his holy Name.

4 Youth is the choicest time we know,
That God affords to men below.
Improve the time, O pray be wise,
Secure the great and heav'nly prize.

5 Look on us Lord, assembled here,
With light and life, and love draw near.
Afford us grace, with one accord,
To hear and understand thy word.

6 Grant us thy Holy Spirit's aid,
To grow in thee, our living hear,
Let all thy graces be appli'd,
Till we be truly sanctifi'd.
