1 Oh, won’t you be a Christian
While you’re young?
Oh, won’t you be a Christian
While you’re young?
Don’t think it will be better
To delay it until later,
But remember your Creator
While you’re young.

2 Oh, won’t you love the Savior
While you’re young?
Oh, won’t you love the Savior
While you’re young?
For you He left His glory,
And embraced a cross so gory,
Won’t you heed the melting story
While you’re young?

3 Remember, death may find you
While you’re young!
Remember, death may find you
While you’re young:
For friends are often weeping,
And the stars their watch are keeping
O’er the grassy graves, where sleeping
Lie the young.

4 Oh, walk the path to glory
While you’re young;
Oh, walk the path to glory
While you’re young;
And Jesus will befriend you,
And from danger will defend you,
And a peace divine will send you
While you’re young.

5 Then won’t you be a Christian
While you’re young?
Then won’t you be a Christian
While you’re young?
Why from the future borrow,
When, ere comes another morrow,
You may weep in endless sorrow
While you’re young?
