383. Savior, Thy Dying Love

1 Savior, thy dying love
thou gavest me,
nor should I aught withhold,
dear Lord, from thee:
in love my soul would bow,
my heart fulfill its vow,
some offering bring thee now,
something for thee.

3 Give me a faithful heart,
guided by thee,
that each departing day
henceforth may see
some work of love begun,
some deed of kindness done,
some wanderer sought and won,
something for thee.

3 All that I am and have,
thy gifts so free,
ever in joy or grief,
my Lord, for thee;
and when thy face I see,
my ransomed soul shall be
through all eternity,
offered to thee.
