What do I owe




What do I owe?
Nay, Lord what do I not?
All that I am
And all that I have got;
All that I am,
And that how small a thing,
Compared with all
Thy goodly fostering.


What do I owe
To this dear land of ours?
All of my best,
My time, my thoughts, my powers;
All of my best
Is yet too small to give,
That this our land
May to Thine increase live.


What do I owe
To all the worlds around?
To set Thee first,
That grace may more abound;
To set Thee first,
To hold Thee all in all,
And, come what may,
To follow Thy high call.


What do I owe
To those who follow on?
To build more sure
The freedom we have won;
To build more sure
The kingdoms of Thy grace,
Kingdoms secure
In truth and righteousness.


What do I owe
To Christ, my Lord, my King?
That all my life
Be one sweet offering;
That all my life
To noblest heights aspire,
That all I do
Be touched with holy fire.
