    O Lord of heaven and earth and sea,

    How shall we show our love to Thee,
    Giver of all?

    Verse 2
    The golden sunshine, vernal air,
    Sweet flowers and fruits, Thy love declare
    Where harvests ripen, Thou art there,
    Giver of all!

    Verse 3
    For peaceful homes and heathful days,
    For all the blessings earth displays,
    We owe Thee thankfulness and praise,
    Giver of all!

    Thou didst not spare Thine only Son,
    But gav'st Him for a world undone,
    And freely with that Blessed One,
    Thou givest all!

    Verse 5
    Thou giv'st the Holy Spirit's dower,
    Spirit of life, and love, and power,
    And dost His sevenfold graces shower
    Upon us all

    For souls redeemed, for sins forgiven,
    For means of grace, and hopes of Heaven,
    Father, what can to Thee be given,
    Who givest all?

    We lose what on ourselves we spend:
    We have as treasure without end
    Whatever, Lord, to Thee we lend,
    Who givest all!

    Whatever, Lord, we lend to Thee
    Repaid a thousandfold will be,
    Then gladly will we give to Thee
    Giver of all!

    Verse 9
    To Thee, from Whom we all derive
    Our life, our gifts, our power to give,
    Oh, may we ever with Thee live,
    Giver of all!
