Strong of body, high of spirit

Full Text

1. Strong of body, high of spirit,
Valiant youth goes striding forth;
His the seasons that inherit
All the treasure trove of earth.
Sky and sunlight, dream and labor,
Mountain crag and sparkling shore,
Love of God and love of neighbor,
These are his forevermore.

2. Lord who liveth, youth undying,
Thou who knowest this our path,
Move among us, still defying
Nights of fear and gulfs of wrath.
Though our years are far and ranging,
We are young who walk with truth,
Hearts at peace that know no changing,
These are thine, immortal youth.
