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.
Harry Plantinga

Take our gifts, Lord Jesus

Representative Text

1 Take our gifts, Lord Jesus,
They are thine alone;
We can only bring thee
What was first thine own.

Take them, blessed Master,
Though so few and small,
Use the gifts, we pray thee,
We would bring our all.

2 When we have but pennies,
These we bring to Thee;
When our gifts are larger,
May they all be free. [Chorus]

3 Take the hearts we offer,
Take our willing hands;
May our feet be waiting
For thy blest commands. [Chorus]

4 Take our happy praises,
Hear our earnest prayer;
Take the gifts we bring thee,
Make our lives thy care. [Chorus]
