Representative Text

1 Give! give! cheerfully give,
As God has giv'n to thee;
Do good to all, is the great command,
And thine a crown shall be.
Give to the widow and orphan one,
Whose burden is hard to bear;
Go, visit the homes that are poor and dark,
And scatter thy treasures there.

Chorus:
Give! give! cheerfully give,
As God has giv'n to thee;
Do good to all, is the great command,
And thine a crown shall be.

2 Give! give! cheerfully give!
Though small may be thy store,
Oh! not in vain was the widow's mite,
Then give, and trust for more.
Give to the weary, the sick and faint,
Oh, banish the tears they shed;
But do it in meekness and love to him,
Who giveth thy daily bread. [Chorus]

3 Give! give! prayerfully give
Where'er thou can'st relieve;
And thou shalt prove it is far more blest
To give than to receive.
Give to the spread of the Gospel light,
To those by the cross who stand;
Where'er their mission, at home or abroad,
Oh, give with a bounteous hand. [Chorus]
