Lord, Thou Lov’St The Cheerful Giver


Lord, Thou lov’st
the cheerful giver,
Who with open heart
and hand
Blesses freely, as a
river
That refreshes all
the land.
Grant us then the
grace of giving
With a spirit large
and free,
That our life and
all our living
We may consecrate to
Thee.We are Thine,
Thy mercy sought us,
Found us in death’s
dreadful way,
To the fold in
safety brought us,
Nevermore from Thee
to stray.
Thine own life Thou
freely gavest
As an off’ring on
the cross
For each sinner whom
Thou savest
From eternal shame
and loss.Blest by Thee
with gifts and
graces,
May we heed Thy
church’s call:
Gladly in all times
and places
Give to Thee Who
givest all.
Thou hast bought us,
and no longer
Can we claim to be
our own;
Ever free and ever
stronger,
We shall serve Thee,
Lord, alone.Savior, Thou hast
freely given
All the blessings we
enjoy.
Earthly store and
bread of heaven,
Love and peace
without alloy;
Humbly now we bow
before Thee,
And our all to Thee
resign;
For the kingdom,
pow’r and glory,
Are, O Lord, forever
Thine.
