GOD OUR BENEFACTOR




My Maker and my King,
To Thee my all I owe;
|: Thy sovereign bounty is the spring
Whence all my blessings flow. :|


Thou ever good and kind
A thousand reasons move,
|: A thousand obligations bind
My heart to grateful praise. :|


The creature of Thy hand,
On Thee alone I live;
|: My God, Thy benefits demand
More praise than I can give. :|


Lord, what can I impart
When all is Thine before?
|: Thy love demands a thankful heart;
The gift, alas! how poor. :|


Shall I withhold thy due?
And shall my passions rove?
|: Lord, form this wretched heart anew,
And fill it with thy love. :|


O! let Thy grace inspire
My soul with strength divine;
|: Let every word and each desire
And all my days be Thine. :|


---Alternative verses---


Thou ever good and kind
A thousand reasons move,
|: A thousand obligations bind
My heart to grateful love. :|
