1 What offering shall I bring to Thee,
Immanuel, my King and God,
Who didst vouchsafe a man to be
To save me by Thy precious blood,
Thou, at Whose birth the angels sing,
“Peace upon earth, goodwill to men,”
To whom the sages humbly bring
Their gifts, though Thou appear so mean?

2 This will I do, Thou Child Divine,
I’ll give Thee that for which Thou cam’st;
My soul and body, Lord, are Thine,
And them in love to me Thou claim’st:
My humble sacrifice receive,
Dear Jesus, born to bleed for me,
That I by faith in Thee might live,
And with Thee live eternally.
