	1. Savior, Thy dying love
	Thou gavest me;
	Nor should I aught withhold,
	Dear Lord, from Thee.
	In love my soul would bow,
	My heart fulfil its vow,
	Some offering bring Thee now,
	Something for Thee.

	2. O'er the blest mercy-seat,
	Pleading for me,
	My feeble faith looks up,
	Jesus, to Thee.
	Help me my cross to bear,
	Thy wondrous love declare,
	Some song to raise or prayer,
	Something for Thee.

	3. Give me a faithful heart,
	Likeness to Thee,
	That each departing day
	Henceforth may see
	Some work of love begun,
	Some deed of kindness done,
	Some wanderer sought and won,
	Something for Thee.

	4. All that I am and have,
	Thy gifts so free,
	In joy, in grief, through life,
	Dear Lord, for Thee!
	And when Thy face I see,
	My ransomed soul shall be
	Through all eternity
	Something for Thee.
