1. Now in the days of youth,
When life flows fresh and free,
Thou Lord of all our hearts and lives,
We give ourselves to thee.
Our fervent gift receive,
And fit us to fulfill,
Through all our days, in all our ways,
Our heavenly Father's will.
2. Teach us where'er we live
To act as in thy sight,
And do what thou wouldst have us do
With radiant delight;
Not choosing what is great,
Nor spurning what is small,
But taking from thy hand our taske
And serving thee in all.
3. Teach us to love the true,
The beautiful and pure,
And let us not for one short hour
An evil thought endure;
But give us grace to stand
Decided, brave, and strong,
The lovers of all holy things,
The foes of all things wrong.
