How shall the young secure their heartsAuthor: Isaac Watts
Published in 418 hymnals
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 heav'nly light
That guides us all the day,
And through the dangers of the night
A lamp to lead our way.
3 The starry heav'ns Thy rule obey;
The earth maintains her place;
And these Thy servants, night and day
Thy skill and pow'r 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 ev'ry page!
That holy Book shall guide our youth
And well support our age.
