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.
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]
