Another poem from the Deseret 2nd Primer (Lesson 20). Probably some of you will recognize it as similar to a hymn from the current L.D.S. Children's Hymnbook. Remember, this is in the original Deseret dialect. Latin script follows:

Lesson Twentyโ€”Juvenile Hymn

Iโ€™ll serve the Lord while I am young
and in my early days
Devote the music of my tongue
to sing his sacred praise.

Iโ€™ll praise His name that He has given
to me a home and birth
Among the most beloved of heaven
that dwell upon the earth.

My parents dear, O Lord, preserve
that they may guide my youth,
That my young feet may never swerve
from goodness and from truth,

And like the faithful ones of old
who now behold Thy face.
May I abide in virtueโ€™s mold
and fill a holy place.

While youth and beauty sweetly twine
their garlands round my head,
Iโ€™ll seek at wisdomโ€™s sacred shrine
the gems that never fade.

Long may I sing Thy praises here
among thy saints below,
And in the world above appear
with them in glory too.
