Youth Is The Time

Go when the heart is warm with youth;

Go when the soul is free from care,

Kneel at the throne of heavenly truth,

And ask for guidance there.

Oh! wait not till the bright days pass,

And cares come thronging round thy way;

This pleasant morn will flee, alas!

And he who finds must seek today.

Thrice happy and thrice blest is he

"Who hears religion's warning voice."

Who seeks in youth "bright wisdom's tree,"

Whose fruit will make his soul rejoice.
