O God of love, who gavest life,
what shall we give to thee,
whose wealth is all the universe,
whose time eternity?
Take thou, O Lord, our humble hearts,
devoted to thy praise,
our very selves--in gratitude
to serve thee all our days.
Thus we would give our precious time,
each dedicated hour
to be an offering blest of thee
to make thy church a power.
And all the talents that we have
we pray thee use, O Lord,
to magnify thy glorious name
and spread abroad thy word.
So then with heart and time and skills
all given in love to thee,
we gladly share our earthly goods
to bless humanity.
