1 O come in childhood’s sunny hour and seek today thy Saviour’s face;
They who seek Him, seek Him early always find.
O seek Him, children, hasten now and heed the gentle call of grace,
Give to Him in consecration, heart and mind.

Refrain:
In early youth, remember thy Creator,
In thy youth, seek heav’nly things to know,
The Shepherd seeks the Lambs in loving kindness,
In thy youth unto the Shepherd go.

2 O, tell you troubles to the Lord, for He will every burden share;
He for sadness, giveth gladness; ‘tis His way;
O, tell Him every little grief, for He doth feel for all thy care,
Gently caring, burdens sharing, day by day. [Refrain]

3 He giveth many precious gifts to those who heed His loving call;
Priceless treasure, bounteous measure, full and free.
Of life, love, mercy, hope and peace He hath abundant share for all,
He is faithful, prove His promise, come and see. [Refrain]
