Hymn #661: We give thee but thine own

Change to large font

1. We give thee but thine own,
whate'er the gift may be;
all that we have is thine alone,
a trust, O Lord, from thee.

2. May we thy bounties thus
as stewards true receive,
and gladly, as thou blessest us,
to thee our first fruits give.

3. To comfort and to bless,
to find a balm for woe,
to tend the lonely in distress
is angels' work below.

4. The captive to release,
to God the lost to bring,
to teach the way of life and peace,
it is a Christlike thing,

5. and we believe thy word,
though dim our faith may be:
whate'er for thine we do, O Lord,
we do it unto thee.
