1 The sweetest songs I fain would offer
Unto Thy glory, Savior mine!
The grandest gifts my hands could proffer,
Should, Lord, be thine and only thine.
And all for which my soul has striven,
And all that life has ever given,
Only thine, only thine,
All should be, O Savior, mine!

2 The fairest flow’rs that e’er were bidden
To grace the dewy morn in spring,
The treasured gold the earth has hidden,
I fain, O Lord, to thee would bring.
And all that fortune has afforded
And all that zeal and toil rewarded,
Only thine, only thine,
All should be, O Savior, mine!

3 The rarest gems, the priceless treasure
That flashed and burned in royal crown,
My heart aflame would bless the pleasure
Before thy throne to lay it down.
And wealth and might should tell the story
Of thee and thy eternal glory;
Only thine, only thine,
All should be, O Savior, mine!

4 I cannot sing the Master’s chorals
That grandly thro’ the ages roll;
I have not wealth of pearls or corals—
I can but bring my ransomed soul;
For this thy sacred side was riven,
For this thy holy life was given;
Only thine, only thine,
I would be, O Savior, mine!
