658. The Wise May Bring Their Learning

1 The wise may bring their learning,
the rich may bring their wealth,
and some may bring their greatness,
and some their strength and health:
we too would bring our treasures
to offer to the King,
we have no wealth or learning -
what shall we children bring?

2 We'll bring him hearts that love him,
we'll bring him thankful praise,
and souls forever striving
to follow in his ways:
and these shall be the treasures
we offer to the King,
and these are gifts that even
our grateful hearts may bring.
