Blooming Youth 442t

Tune: Henry Goodwin Mann, 1869
Lyrics: Thomas Gibbons, 1769
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
In the bright season of thy youth,
In nature's smiling bloom,
Ere age arrives and trembling waits,
It summons to the tomb.

Remember thy Creator, God;
For him thy pow'rs employ,
Make him thy fear, thy love, thy hope,
Thy portion and thy joy.
