1. Lord Jesus, blessèd Giver,
We give of Thine to Thee;
Thy gifts are like a river,
Full flowing, wide and free.
So let our love, outgoing
Among the songs of men,
Thy strength and joy bestowing,
Return Thy gifts again.

2. O give us of Thy Spirit
That joys to give Its all;
Thy voice—O when we hear it
May we obey its call.
That voice whose call is pleading
From nations far away—
We hear it, we are heeding;
Lord, help us to obey.
