Verse 1
O Lord of heaven and earth and sea,
To Thee all praise and glory be;
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!

Verse 4
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

Verse 6
For souls redeemed, for sins forgiven,
For means of grace, and hopes of Heaven,
Father, what can to Thee be given,
Who givest all?

Verse 7
We lose what on ourselves we spend:
We have as treasure without end
Whatever, Lord, to Thee we lend,
Who givest all!

Verse 8
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!
