Full Text

1 I will give to the Lord with a loving heart
All the gold of my mind’s best treasure;
I can never repay half the debt I owe
For his blessings in boundless measure.

I will give to the lord my money,
I will give to the Lord my time;
All my talents, my strength, all my soul, my life,
I will give for his cause sublime.

2 All my gifts, keeping none for a selfish aim,
For his glory each day displaying,
In his cause most sublime, in his service sweet,
Life and soul on his altar laying. [Refrain]

3 I will give to the Lord, not a mite withhold,
With a loyal and true endeavor;
What he claims I surrender to him alone,
Lay it down at his feet forever. [Refrain]
