Hymn/Song Information

SNARES OF YOUTH




Frail youth are in a slippery path,
Beset with mighty foes;
Surrounded with disease and death,
Unnumbered sins and woes.


Their passions war against the soul,
And lead their feet astray;
Submitting to the world’s control,
Thy shun the narrow way.


To vanities of time and sense,
Their youthful hearts are prone;
How difficult to draw them thence,
To seek a heavenly crown.


Great God, the work is wholly thine,
To guide our erring youth;
Do thou their wandering hearts incline,
To seek the ways of truth.


Restrain impetuous passions, Lord,
Upwards direct their eyes;
Give them a heart to know thy word,
And all thy counsels prize.
