Words: Isaac Watts
Music: Ludwig van Beethoven
How shall the young secure their hearts,
And guard their lives from sin?
Thy Word the choicest rules imparts
To keep the conscience clean,
To keep the conscience clean.
‘Tis like the sun, a heav’nly light,
That guides us all the day;
And, thru the dangers of the night,
A lamp to lead our way,
A lamp to lead our way.
Thy Word is everlasting truth;
How pure is ev’ry page!
That holy book shall guide our youth,
And well support our age,
And well support our age.
