Hymn/Song Information

Give to me Lord a thankful heart




Give to me, Lord, a thankful heart
And a discerning mind;
Give, as I play the Christianís part,
The strength to finish what I start
And act on what I find.


When, in the rush of days, my will
Is habit bound and slow,
Help me to keep in vision, still,
What love and power and peace can fill
A life that trusts in you.


By your divine and urgent claim,
And by your human face,
Kindle our sinking hearts to flame,
And as you teach the world your name
Let it become your place.


Jesus, with all your church I long
To see your kingdom come:
Show me your way of righting wrong
And turning sorrow into song
Until you bring me home.
