In Tune:

More Than I Can Give

Words and music by Laura Ashton

    1. When I see someone who is in need

    Whom I can comfort, clothe, or even feed

    I realize how much I have, and I know it’s given to me

    To relieve the suff’ring that I see.


    2. So I give my substance to the poor

    To pay my debt, but then I’m given more;

    And so I never can repay the One who has helped me so to live,

    But I can show love in how I give.



    And when I serve others with love

    I am uplifted and filled with peace;

    It seems that I’m the one who receives;

    I’m given strength that comes from above.

    (See Mosiah 4:19–21.)
