1  O Lord of heaven and earth and sea,
to Thee all praise and glory be;
how shall we show our love to Thee
who givest all?

2  The golden sunshine, vernal air,
sweet flowers and fruits Thy love declare;
when harvests ripen, Thou art there,
who givest all.

3  For peaceful homes and healthful days,
for all the blessings earth displays,
we owe Thee thankfulness and praise,
who givest all.


4  Thou didst not spare Thine only Son,
but gav'st Him for a world undone,
and freely with that blessed One
Thou givest all.

5  Thou giv'st the Holy Spirit's dower,
Spirit of life and love and power,
and dost His sevenfold graces shower
upon us all.

6  For souls redeemed, for sins forgiven,
for means of grace and hopes of heaven,
Father, what can to thee be given,
who givest all?
