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.
Harry Plantinga

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)
