Give as the Lord hath prospered thee,
Give, give to the Lord;
Give with a willing mind and free,
Give, give to the Lord;
He hath supplied thee o’er and o’er,
Blessed thee in basket and in store,
Promised to fill thee more and more,
Thy gracious Lord.

Refrain

Give, give with a willing hand,
Give, give with a liberal hand,
Give at His blest command,
Who prospered thee,
Give at His blest command,
Who prospered thee.

Give to the poor along the way,
Give, give to the Lord;
Give to the heathen far away,
Give, give to the Lord;
Give to His needy as they cry,
Give to His people ere they die,
Give to His Gospel that it fly,
O give, give, give.

Refrain

Give, tho’ so poor thy gift may seem,
Give, give to the Lord;
Give but the cup in Jesus’ name,
Give, give to the Lord;
Cheerful then give the good thou hast,
Fearless thy bread on waters cast,
It will return to thee at last
In harvest great.

Refrain
