ADDRESS TO YOUTH




Amidst the cheerful bloom of youth,
With ardent zeal pursue,
The ways of piety and truth,
With death and heaven in view.


Fair wisdom’s paths with sweets are strewed,
And pleasures all refined;
There joys divine are shed abroad,
That suit the immortal mind.


Youth is the most accepted time,
To love and serve the Lord;
A flower presented in its prime,
Will much delight afford.


He’ll crown with peace your rising years,
And make your fruit increase;
Will guide you through this vale of tears,
And bid your sorrows cease.


Give him the morning of your days,
And be for ever blessed;
‘Tis none but those in wisdom’s ways
Enjoy substantial rest.
