Lord, You Love the Cheerful Giver

  1. Lord, you love the cheerful giver,
    who with open heart and hand
    blesses freely, as a river
    that refreshes all the land.
    Grant us then the grace of giving
    with a spirit large and free,
    that our life and all our living
    we may consecrate to thee.
  2. We are thine, thy mercy sought us,
    found us in death’s dreadful way,
    to the fold in safety brought us,
    nevermore from thee to stray.
    Thine own life thou freely gavest
    as an off’ring on the cross
    for each sinner whom thou savest
    from eternal shame and loss.
  3. Blest by thee with gifts and graces,
    may we heed thy church’s call;
    gladly in all times and places
    give to thee who givest all.
    Thou hast bought us, and no longer
    can we claim to be our own;
    ever free and ever stronger,
    we shall serve thee, Lord, alone.
  4. Savior, thou hast freely given
    all the blessings we enjoy,
    earthly store and bread of heaven,
    love and peace without alloy;
    humbly now we bow before thee,
    and our all to thee resign;
    for the kingdom, pow’r, and glory
    are, O Lord, forever thine.
