Representative Text

1 In the soft season of thy youth,
In nature's smiling bloom,
Ere age arrives, and, trembling, wait
Its summons to the tomb.

2 Remember thy Creator, God;
For Him thy powers employ.
Make Him thy fear, thy love, thy hope,
Thy confidence, thy joy.

3 He shall defend and guide thy course
Through life's uncertain sea,
Till thou art landed on the shore
Of blest eternity.

4 Then seek the Lord betimes, and choose
The path of heavenly truth;
The earth affords no lovelier sight
Than a religious youth.

Amen.
