Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come, and the years approach when you will say, I find no pleasure in them.@Ecclesiastes 12:1

Remember in youth thy Creator,
Give heed to the voice of His Word;
For happy are they who believe Him,
And trust in the arm of the Lord.

Refrain

Remember in youth thy Creator,
How gentle His goodness and care;
The best of His blessings He offers,
The gift of His love you may share.

Remember in youth thy Creator,
Ere days that are evil draw nigh;
And years that afford us no pleasure
Shall chase the bright beams from our sky.

Refrain

He claims our affection in childhood,
He offers the gift of His love;
O then let us earnestly seek Him,
And lay up our treasure above.
