    Verse 1
    We give Thee but Thine own,
    Whate'er the gift may be;
    All that we have is Thine alone,
    A trust, O Lord, from Thee

    Verse 2
    May we Thy bounties thus
    As stewards true receive,
    And gladly, as Thou blessest us,
    To Thee our first-fruits give

    Verse 3
    O hearts are bruised and dead,
    And homes are bare and cold,
    And lambs, for whom the Shepherd bled,
    Are straying from the fold

    Verse 4
    To comfort and to bless,
    To find a balm for woe,
    To tend the lone and fatherless
    Is angels' work below

    Verse 5
    The captive to release,
    To God the lost to bring,
    To teach the way of life and peace,
    It is a Christ-like thing

    Verse 6
    And we believe Thy word,
    Though dim our faith may be;
    Whate'er for Thine we do, O Lord,
    We do it unto Thee
