Thy life was given for me Thy Blood O




Thy life was given for me;
Thy blood, O Lord, was shed,
That I might ransomed be,
and quickened from the dead.
|:Thy life was given for me;
what have I given for Thee? :|


Long years were spent for me,
in weariness and woe,
That through eternity
Thy glory I might know.
|:Long years were spent for me;
have I spent one for Thee? :|


Thy Father's home of light,
thy rainbow-circled throne,
were left for earthly night,
for wanderings sad and lone.
|:Yea, all was left for me;
have I left aught for thee?:|


Thou, Lord, hast borne for me
more than my tongue can tell
of bitterest agony,
to rescue me from hell.
|:Thou sufferedst all for me;
what have I borne for thee?:|


And Thou hast brought to me,
down from Thy home above,
Salvation full and free,
Thy pardon and Thy love.
|:Great gifts Thou broughtest me;
what have I brought to Thee? :|


O let my life be given,
my years for Thee be spent,
World fetters all be riven,
and joy with suffering blent!
|:Thou gavest Thyself for me;
I give myself to Thee. :|
