Lyrics

What shall I bring to the Savior?
What shall I lay at His feet?
I have no glittering jewels,
No gold, no frankincense sweet.

Refrain

Gifts to the Savior I’m bringing,
Love’s richest treasures to lay
Low at His feet with rejoicing,
Ere yonder sunset today.

What shall I bring to the Savior?
Lips His dear praises to sing,
Feet that will walk in the pathway,
Leading to Jesus, our king!

Refrain

What shall I bring to the Savior?
Love that is purest and best,
Life in its sweetness and beauty,
All for His service, so blest.

Refrain
