I have my great-great-grandfather's Lutheran confirmation (Confirmationslied) dated March 1848. He moved to Indiana from Bavaria in 1837 when he was 13 years old, so I'm guessing this was from a German Lutheran church somewhere in Hamilton County, Indiana when he was 24.

Anyone here that can read this script and tell me what it says?

I lived in Hamilton county for a while. I wasn't aware of any particular German history there. Doesn't mean it wasn't there though.

Get in contact with a large Lutheran church in that county.  It is north of Indianapolis, so there should be many.

I can pick out a word here and there but that writing style is really difficult. You need a freakin cryptologist!!!

It's 2 Timothy 2:22, very popular for baptisms and confirmations.

Auf Deutsch:
"Fliehe die Lüste der Jugend; jage aber nach der Gerechtigkeit, dem Glauben, der Liebe, dem Frieden mit allen, die den HERRN anrufen von reinem Herzen."

In English:
"Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart."
