Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

[Boys]
1 Lord, in the days of youth
May we in grace improve;
And learn the word of sacred truth,
The Saviour's dying love!

[Girls]
2 Our moments haste away,
With ev'ry heaving breath;
And swiftly hastens on the day,
When we must sink in death.

[Boys]
3 While some are never taught
The way of God with care;
We bless the Lord that we are brought
To this thine house of pray'r.

[Girls]
4 Lord give us ears to hear,
And hearts to understand;
In trouble may we find thee near--
A Saviour close at hand!

[Boys]
5 Through life's dark rugged road,
Thus far we're kept by thee:
May heaven at last be our abode,
Thy glory there to see.

[Girls]
6 Blest be our God, who lives,
And reigns with boundless sway;
Richly our benefactor gives:
We'll praise him all the day.

[Both]
7 Beyond the azure sky,
We'll praise thee more and more;
And through a long eternity,
A God in Christ adore.
