    Verse 1
    What shall we offer our good Lord,
    Poor nothings, for His boundless grace?
    Fain would we His great name record
    And worthily set forth His praise

    Verse 2
    Great object of our growing love,
    To whom our more than all we owe,
    Open the fountain from above,
    And let it our full souls o'erflow

    Verse 3
    So shall our lives Thy power proclaim,
    Thy grace for every sinner free;
    Till all mankind shall learn Thy name,
    Shall all stretch out their hands to Thee

    Verse 4
    Open a door which earth and hell
    May strive to shut, but strive in vain;
    Let Thy word richly in us dwell,
    And let our gracious fruit remain

    Verse 5
    O multiply the sower's seed!
    And fruit we every hour shall bear,
    Throughout the world Thy gospel spread,
    Thy everlasting truth declare

    Verse 6
    We all, in perfect love renewed,
    Shall know the greatness of Thy power,
    Stand in the temple of our God
    As pillars and go out no more
