Representative Text

1 In the morning of thy life,
Ere the seeds of sin and strife
Spring within thy heart and grow, seek the Lord;
To His will thine all resign,
Let Him guide with love divine,
And the joys of heav’n thou’lt know, seek the Lord.

Seek the Lord, oh! seek the Lord,
In the happy days of youth, seek the Lord,
Seek the Lord, oh! seek the Lord,
In the happy days of youth, seek the Lord.

2 Thou wilt need Him every hour
To dispel the tempter’s pow’r,
And while youth and strength are thine seek the Lord;
Give to Him the days so bright,
Early walk in truth and light,
Serve Him till thy life’s decline, seek the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Consecrate thyself to Him
Ere the lamp of life grows dim,
Bid the masses one and all, seek the Lord;
That thou may some trophy bring
To thy blessed Saviour, King,
When He shall to heaven call, seek the Lord. [Refrain]
