                              Text From:
                         THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
             (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        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 fruit, 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 Spirit's holy 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,
        What can to Thee, O Lord, be given
        Who givest all?

        7. We lose what on ourselves we spend;
        We have as treasure without end
        Whatever Lord, to Thee we lend,
        Who givest all;

        8. To Thee, from whom we all derive
        Our life, our gifts, our power to give.
        Oh, may we ever with Thee live,
        Who givest all!
