Hymn: TLH 286: How Shall the Young Secure Their Hearts

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. How shall the young secure their hearts 
And guard their lives from sin? 
Thy Word the choicest rules imparts 
To keep the conscience clean. 

2. “Tis like the sun, a heavenly light, 
That guides us all the day, 
And through the dangers of the night 
A lamp to lead our way. 

3. The starry heavens Thy rule obey, 
The earth maintains her place; 
And these Thy servants, night and day, 
Thy skill and power express. 

4. But still Thy Law and Gospel, Lord, 
Have lessons more divine; 
Not earth stands firmer than Thy Word, 
Nor stars so nobly shine. 

5. Thy Word is everlasting truth; 
How pure is every page! 
That holy Book shall guide our youth 
And well support our age.
