Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

O what shall we bring to the Savior

Representative Text

1 Oh, what shall we bring to the Saviour,
The risen and glorious King,
As now, on this day of rejoicing,
His mighty redemption we sing?
A purpose unfalt'ring and earnest,
A love that is ardent and pure,
And praises the gladdest and sweetest,
Are gifts that may ever endure.

2 We bring the heart's truest devotion,
We consecrate all that we own;
Our service so ready and loyal,
We pledge to our Master alone.
The gold and the silver he gives us,
The poor and neglected shall share;
And here, in the temple of worship,
We offer the incense of prayer.

3 The fruits of devout self denial,
We bring to the Lord on this day,
With hearts that are trustful and loving,
And bear his rich blessing away.
We'll tell to the pris'ners of sorrow,
With sympathy fervent and deep,
That Jesus, the risen Redeemer,
His promise forever will keep.
