Ephesians 5: 19; Colossians 3: 16
Verse 1: Dear Lord, a great debt I owe Thee today. My gifts could never begin to repay. For countless blessings You’ve showered on me. I know my deeds just a token would be.
Verse 2: Your precious blood takes my sin all away. How can I tell what my soul longs to say. Such tender mercy and kindness I see, How could my songs ever magnify Thee?
Verse 3: For all dear loved ones who gladden each day, The feelings of my heart can’t be displayed. All nature’s beauty gives glory to Thee. Help me extol all the virtues I see.
Verse 4: With hope of heaven I’ll finish the way. With thankful heart I will faithfully pray. For perfect gifts and all favors to me, I am forever indebted to Thee.
Chorus: What shall I render, dear Savior Divine? No worthy off’ring can I find. Now in Your word the true answer I see: “Take up your cross, and follow me.”
