Lyrics

Lord, take my all—the gift is small
For Thee, for Thee;
What hast Thou done, O blessèd One,
For me, for me!
What hast Thou done, O blessèd One,
For me, for me!

Dare I refuse, my life to use
For Thee, for Thee;
Who shed Thy blood, a cleansing flood,
For me, for me?
Who shed Thy blood, a cleansing flood,
For me, for me?

Would I had more, Earth’s richest store,
For Thee, for Thee;
Thy love has met a boundless debt,
For me, for me;
Thy love has met a boundless debt,
For me, for me.

By grace divine, seal what is mine
For Thee, for Thee;
Who suffered loss, and bore the cross,
For me, for me;
Who suffered loss, and bore the cross,
For me, for me.

Lord, here am I, to live or die
For Thee, for Thee;
Thy sacrifice has paid the price
For me, for me;
Thy sacrifice has paid the price
For me, for me.
