Hymn/Song Information

In the soft season of thy youth in natures smiling




In the soft season of thy youth,
In nature’s smiling bloom,
Ere age arrive, and trembling wait
Its summons to the tomb;


Remember thy Creator, God;
For him thy powers employ;
Make him thy fear, thy love, thy hope,
Thy confidence, thy joy.


He shall defend and guide thy course
Through life’s uncertain sea,
Till thou art landed on the shore
Of blessed eternity.


Then seek the Lord betimes, and choose
The path of heavenly truth:
The earth affords no lovelier sight
Than a religious youth.


---Alternative verses---


He shall defend and guide thy course
Through life’s uncertain sea,
Till thou art landed on the coast
Of blest eternity.
