We thank you for the gifts you send


We thank you for the gifts you send:

The seasons that your wisdom planned;

The air we breathe, the time we spend,

All given by your gracious hand.

The food we eat, the work we do;

Our church, our fam'ly and each friend;

And, at the greatest cost to you,

A gift of love that knows no end:

Eternal life, without a price.

Awoken by the Spirit's call.

Paid through the Son in sacrifice.

To us, the greatest gift of all.

In grateful praise we offer you

All of our money, time and skill.

Our goal, your glory to pursue,

And live in service to your will.

Grant us the grace to serve with love

With open hearts ourselves to give.

To set out goal on things above

And only for your glory live.
