1 Give, thou, thy youth to God,
With all its budding love;
Send up thy op'ning heart to Him,
Fix it on One above.
2 Be early wise for heav'n,
Choose, thou, the narrow way;
The gate is strait, the road is rough,
But it will end in day.
3 Take, thou, the side of God,
In things or great or small,
So shall He ever take thy side,
And bear thee safe thro' all.
4 Quail not before the bad,
Be brave for truth and right,
Fear God alone, and ever walk
As in His holy sight.
