What can I give to Jesus

What can I give to Jesus

Published in 20 hymnals

Representative Text

What can I give to Jesus,
Who gave himself for me?
How can I show my love for him
Who died on Calvary?

1 I'll give my heart to Jesus,
In childhood's tender Spring;
I know that he will not despise
So mean an offering.

What can I give to Jesus,
Who gave himself for me?
How can I show my love for him
Who died on Calvary?

2 I'll give my soul to Jesus,
And calmly, gladly rest,
Its youthful hopes and fond desires
Upon his loving breast.

What can I give to Jesus,
Who gave himself for me?
How can I show my love for him
Who died on Calvary?

3 I'll give my mind to Jesus,
And seek in thoughtful hours,
His spirits grace to consecrate
Its early op'ning pow'rs.

What can I give to Jesus,
Who gave himself for me?
How can I show my love for him
Who died on Calvary?

4 I'll give my strength to Jesus,
Of foot, and head, and will,
Run where he sends and ever strive
His pleasure to fulfil.

What can I give to Jesus,
Who gave himself for me?
How can I show my love for him
Who died on Calvary?

5 I'll give my time to Jesus,
Oh, that each hour might be
Filled up with holy work for him,
Who spent his life for me.

What can I give to Jesus,
Who gave himself for me?
How can I show my love for him
Who died on Calvary?

6 I'll give my all to Jesus,
'Tis little I possess;
But all I am, and all I have,
Dear Lord, accept and bless.
