During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Lord, in the days of youth May we in grace improve

Lord, in the days of youth May we in grace improve

Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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