Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 O Happy youth that fear the Lord,
And walk in all his ways;
Who take delight to learn his word,
And serve him all their days.
2 In such the Lord will take delight,
He takes them for his own.
And they are pleasing in his sight,
In Jesus, his dear Son.
3 The Lord in mercy, hears their pray'r,
When they pray with their heart;
He keeps them ever in his care,
And ne'er from them will part.
4 Bless'd are the children who despise
To walk the sinful road;
The Lord will make them truly wise,
To learn the word of God.
5 The Lord will keep them in his hand,
And help them when they need;
He gives him grace to understand
The lessons which they read.
6 The blessed Jesus is their friend,
And leads them in his way;
When they do learn, he will attend,
And hear them when they pray.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCI
