Remember in your youthful days
The Lord your God alone;
He formed you long before your birth
And chose you for His own.
He shaped your body and your mind,
He gave you talents too,
That you might render thanks to Him
In everything you do.
The time allotted you on earth
Is not your own to use –
It’s His; and only for His praise
And glory must you choose.
And when, because of sinful lust,
You follow evil ways,
Repent; resolve to do the right
In all succeeding days.
He hears the prayers of those who seek
Forgiveness for their sin.
In fact, contrite you come to Him
Because He works within.
Assurance of His love and grace
He gives with lib’ral hand.
His strength upholds you in your need
And causes you to stand.
You cannot face the onslaughts of
The devil and his host,
For there is nothing of yourself
On which your soul can boast.
But he who comes, in. sorrow clothed,
Shall not be put to shame.
The cross of Christ erases guilt.
All glory to His Name!
