1Lord of all creation,
Now before Thy Throne,
We Thy people bring Thee
Gifts that are Thine own.
Thine is all the greatness,
Power and glory Thine,
High o’er all exalted,
Majesty Divine.
Of Thine Own we offer,
Of Thy gifts we give
Unto Thee, O Father,
In Whose life all live.
2All the gold and silver,
Corn on plains and hills,
Grass upon the mountains,
Water in the rills–
All things yield Thee glory,
With Thy Light they shine;
Thou all art inspirest–
Science, skill, are Thine.
Of Thine Own we offer,
Of Thy gifts we give
Unto Thee, O Father,
In Whose life all live.
3Body, Soul and Spirit,
Thought, and speech, and song,
Come of Thee, Creator,
And to Thee belong.
These in bounden duty
We devote to Thee;
Thine is all the power,
Thine the glory be.
Of Thine Own we offer,
Of Thy gifts we give
Unto Thee, O Father,
In Whose life all live.
4Of all works man doeth,
None can greater be
Than the work devoted,
O Lord God, to Thee:
Hither all to serve Thee,
Rich and poor repair,
Joy awaits Thy people
In Thy House of Prayer.
Of Thine Own we offer,
Of Thy gifts we give
Unto Thee, O Father,
In Whose life all live.
5Alms-deeds, prayers, and praises,
With “the willing mind,”
In the Name of Jesus,
Shall acceptance find.
Evermore thanksgiving
To the Father, Son,
And the gracious Spirit,
Blessèd Three in One.
Still Thy Church shall offer,
Of Thy gifts shall give,
Unto Thee, the Giver,
In Whose life all live. Amen.
1 Chronicles29:14But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.
