Tune: TALLIS' CANON (LM)
by Thomas Tallis
1. Lord, I would give myself to you
as you have given, full and free;
and if in giving I am true,
then let me now give all of me.
2. So let me give you all I have -
the things I like to call my own:
the things that I can make or do;
the time in which it must be done.
3. Why would I not give all for you?
From your fullness, flowing free,
grace upon grace pours out from you;
Let me then give as I've received!
4. Economists may shake their heads,
I won't hold back or hedge my bets,
one basket only for these eggs!
No compromise and no regrets.
5. A widow gives her last two coins -
who can make sense of God's accounts?
With humblest gifts from just a boy,
God satisfies the hungry crowds!
6. My Lord, how sweet it is to find
I have so much that I can give,
for nothing here is truly mine,
yet rich and free I have received!
