Representative Text

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

Chorus:
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]
