The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.@Romans 6:23
C. Latham True (1873–1945)

Grace E. Uhler, 1911.

Miss Grace Emma Euhler, of Baltimore, writes that the lines were prompted by a deep sense of my own need and the all-sufficiency of the great Gift, which expressed itself in the second verse, and then the other two verses grouped themselves around it.

Donum Dei Latham True, 1911 (🔊 pdf nwc).

O Gift of God, we praise Thee,
That ever Thou didst come
To guide our wayward footsteps
Back to the Father’s home.

O Gift of God, we take Thee
To be our All in All;
We know Thou art sufficient
Whatever may befall.

O Gift of God, we give Thee
Ourselves, Thine own to be;
Accept us, save and keep us
Throughout eternity.
