Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

The gold and silver are the Lord's

The gold and silver are the Lord's

Published in 28 hymnals

Full Text

1 The gold and silver are the Lord's;
And every blessing earth affords,
All come from his propitious hand,
And must return at his command.

2 The blessings which I now enjoy,
I must for Christ and souls employ;
For if I use them as my own,
My Lord will soon call in his loan.

3 When I to him in want apply,
He never does my suit deny;
And shall I then refuse to give,
Since I from him so much receive?

4 Shall Jesus leave the realms of day,
And clothe himself in humble clay?
Shall he become despised and poor,
To make me rich for evermore?
