1. We give thee but thine own,Whate’er the gift may be,For all we have is thine alone,A trust, O Lord, from thee.
2. May we thy bounties thusAs stewards true receive,And gladly, as thou blessest us,To thee our firstfruits give.
3. To comfort and to bless,To find a balm for woe,To tend the lone and fatherlessIs angels’ work below.
4. And we believe thy word,Tho dim our faith may be;Whate’er we do for thine, O Lord,We do it unto thee.
