Christopher Wordsworth, 1863; revised 1872

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 fruit, thy love declare;
Where 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?

7. To thee, from whom we all derive
Our life, our gifts, our power to give;
O may we ever with thee live
Who givest all.
