LYRIC

1 Thy life was giv’n for me,
thy blood, O Lord, was shed,
that I might ransomed be,
and quickened from the dead;
thy life, thy life was giv’n for me;
what have I giv’n for thee?

2 Long years were spent for me
in weariness and woe,
that through eternity
thy glory I might know;
long years, long years were spent for me;
have I spent one for thee?

3 Thy Father’s home of light,
the rainbow-circled throne,
were left for earthly night,
for wand’rings sad and lone;
yea! all, yea! all was left me;
have I left aught for thee?

4 And thou hast brought to me
down from thy home above
salvation full and free,
thy pardon and thy love;
great gifts, great gifts thou broughtest me;
what have I brought to thee?

5 O let my life be giv’n
my years for thee be spent;
world-fetters all be riv’n
and joy with suff’ring blent:
thou gav’st, thou gav’st thyself for me,
I give myself to thee.
