We don't often ask for money.
But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to
keep Hymnary.org going.
You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship
leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at

1. In life’s gay dawn, when sprightly youth
With vital ardor glows,
And shines in all the fairest charms
Which beauty can disclose;
2. Deep on thy soul, before its powers
Are yet by vice enslaved,
By thy creator’s precious name
And character engraved.
3. For soon the shades of grief shall cloud
The sunshine of thy days,
And cares and ills, in endless round,
Encompass all thy ways.
4. Soon shall thy heart the woes of age
In mournful sighs deplore,
And sadly muse on former joys,
That now return no more.
