Hymn/Song Information

We want the young for Jesus




We want the young for Jesus;
Now in their youthful days,
Oh, may they seek the Saviour,
And early sing His praise.

O Lord, in life’s bright morning,
To Thee our hearts we bring;
Our praises Thou wilt welcome,
When from the heart we sing.



We want the young for Jesus;
On earth, when He was near,
With gentle, sweet affection,
He drew the children near.

O Lord, in life’s bright morning,
To Thee our hearts we bring;
Our praises Thou wilt welcome,
When from the heart we sing.



And still He waits to bless them
With fond and yearning love:
Kind Shepherd, He would lead them
Safe to the fold above.

O Lord, in life’s bright morning,
To Thee our hearts we bring;
Our praises Thou wilt welcome,
When from the heart we sing.



We want the young for Jesus;
Be this our blest employ;
No mission could be nobler,
Or fraught with sweeter joy.

O Lord, in life’s bright morning,
To Thee our hearts we bring;
Our praises Thou wilt welcome,
When from the heart we sing.



For e’en the tiniest jewel
Shall shine in Jesus’ crown,
And sparkle there for ever
When time itself has flown.

O Lord, in life’s bright morning,
To Thee our hearts we bring;
Our praises Thou wilt welcome,
When from the heart we sing.
