How Shall the Young Secure Their Hearts?

Date recorded: October 04, 2013

Words by: Isaac Watts

Music by: Ludwig van Beethoven

How shall the young secure their hearts,
And guard their lives from sin?
Thy Word the choicest rules imparts
To keep the conscience clean,
To keep the conscience clean.

‘Tis like the sun, a heav’nly light,
That guides us all the day;
And, thru the dangers of the night,
A lamp to lead our way,
A lamp to lead our way.

Thy Word is everlasting truth;
How pure is ev’ry page!
That holy book shall guide our youth,
And well support our age,
And well support our age.

I never heard this song before. Inspiring thought, How shall the young secure their hearts? such heavenly melody. I loved it the first time; will learn it and teach it others. Well done.

This hymn brings me memories from my days at Abilene Christian University as a student. It surely helped me to find my Christian way of living.
