Hymnary Friends,

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.

O happy youth that fear the Lord

O happy youth that fear the Lord

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
