Representative Text

1 O Lord how much I owe to Thee,
For all Thy tender love to me,
For what I am and hope to be,
No tongue can ever tell.

Chorus:
No words can ever show
How much to Thee I owe,
No heart on earth can ever know
How great Thy love to me.

2 My home, my friends my brethren dear,
And all that fills my heart with cheer,
The faith and hope, to calm my fear
Has come, O Lord, from Thee. [Chorus]

3 This life with all its peaceful ways,
The Church with holy songs of praise,
The hope and love that crown my days,
The Lord has given me. [Chorus]
