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.

2 May we thy bounties thus
as stewards true receive,
and gladly, as thou blessest us,
to thee our first-fruits give.

3 To comfort and to bless,
to find a balm for woe,
to tend the lonely in distress
is angels’ work below.

4 The captive to relieve,
to God the lost to bring,
to teach the way of life and peace—
it is a Christ-like thing.

5 And we believe thy Word,
though dim our faith may be;
whate’er for thine we do, O Lord,
we do it unto thee.
