THE ACCEPTING OFFERING




Lord! what offering shall we bring,
At Thine altars when we bow?
Hearts, the pure, unsullied spring,
Whence the kind affections flow:


Soft compassion's feeling soul.
By the melting eye expressed;
Sympathy, at whose control
Sorrow leaves the wounded breast;


Willing hands, to lead the blind,
Bind the wounded, feed the poor;
Love, embracing all our kind.
Charity, with liberal store.


Teach us, O thou Heavenly King,
Thus to show our grateful mind,
Thus the accepted offering bring,
Love to Thee and all mankind.


---Alternative verses---


Willing hands, to lead the blind,
Heal the wounded, feed the poor;
Love, embracing all our kind.
Charity, with liberal store.
