1 With humble heart and tongue,
Our God, to Thee I pray,
Oh, make me learn whilst we are young,
How we may cleanse our way.
2 Make us, unguarded youth,
The objects of Thy care,
Help us to choose the way of truth,
And fly from every snare.
3 Our hearts, to folly prone,
Renew by power divine,
Unite them to Thyself alone,
And make us wholly Thine.
4 Oh, let thy word of grace
Our warmest thoughts employ,
Be this through all our foll'wing days,
Our treasure and our joy.
5 To what Thy laws impart,
Be our whole soul inclined;
Oh, let them dwell within our heart,
And sanctify our mind.
6 May Thy young servants learn
By these to cleanse their way;
And may we hear the path discern
That leads to endless day.
