O Lord of heavín and earth and sea,
To Thee all praise and glory be;
How shall we show our love to Thee,
Who givest all?


The golden sunshine, vernal air,
Sweet flowers and fruits, Thy love declare;
Where harvests ripen, Thou art there,
Who givest all.


For peaceful homes and healthful days,
For all the blessings earth displays,
We owe Thee thankfulness and praise,
Who givest all.


Thou didst not spare Thine only Son,
But gavíst Him for a world undone,
And freely, with that blessŤd One,
Thou givest all.


Thou givíst the Spiritís blessŤd dower,
Spirit of life and love and power,
And dost His sevenfold graces shower
Upon us all.


For souls redeemed, for sins forgivín,
For means of grace and hopes of heavín,
Father, all praise to Thee be givín,
Who givest all.


We lose what on ourselves we spend,
We have as treasure without end
Whatever, Lord, to Thee we lend,
Who givest all.


Whatever, Lord, we lend to Thee
Repaid a thousandfold will be;
Then gladly will we give to Thee,
Who givest all.


To Thee, from Whom we all derive
Our life, our gifts, our power to give:
O may we ever with Thee live,
Who givest all.


---Alternative verses---


For health and home and lengthened days,
For all the blessings earth displays,
Our God, we owe Thee thanks and praise,
Who givest all.


For souls redeemed, for sins forgiven,
For present grace and hopes of heaven,
Father, what can to Thee be given,
Who givest all?
