1 Like gentle dew the blessings fall
From God whose love inspires our song;
Our time, our talents and our all,
From Him received, to Him belong.

Then let us offer to His name
The willing sacrifice of praise;
And may our grateful lips proclaim
His goodness in the notes we raise!

2 On Jesus all our sins were laid;
He freely shed His precious blood,
And thus our advocate was made,
That He might bring us near to God. [Refrain]

3 To save from death our guilty race,
He bore the cross, endured the pain;
O wondrous riches of His grace!
In Him we die to live again. [Refrain]
