443. O Lord of Heaven and Earth and Sea

1 O Lord of heav'n and earth and sea,
To Thee all praise and glory be.
How shall we show our love to Thee,
Who givest all?

2 The golden sunshine, vernal air,
Sweet flow'rs and fruits Thy love declare.
When harvests ripen, Thou art there,
Who givest all.

3 For peaceful homes, and healthful days,
For all the blessings earth displays,
We owe Thee thankfulness and praise,
Who givest all.

4 Thou didst not spare Thine only Son,
But gav’st Him for a world undone,
And freely with that Blessed One
Thou givest all.

5 Thou giv’st the Holy Spirit’s dower,
Spirit of Life and Love and Power,
And dost His sevenfold graces shower
Upon us all.

6 For souls redeemed, for sins forgiven,
For means of grace and hopes of heaven,
Father, all praise to Thee be given,
Who givest all?

7 We lose what on ourselves we spend;
We have as treasure without end
Whatever, Lord, to Thee we lend,
Who givest all.

8 To Thee, from whom we all derive
Our life, our gifts, our power to give.
Oh, may we ever with Thee live,
Who givest all!
