Text Information

First Line: Children in your earliest youth


Children, in your earliest youth. [Early Piety.) This hymn is in the 23rd ed. of the Silver Street S. Scholar's Companion, 1829, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines. The principal compiler of that edition was John Latta. Although it may possibly be his, yet, lacking direct evidence to that effect, we must give it as “Anon." --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)
