HOW MUCH HAVE I GIVEN

HOW MUCH HAVE I GIVEN

How much have I given to God
Of my talents, my treasures, my time
How often have I prayed as I ought
How many prayers have been selfishly mine?

O empty me Lord of myself
Fill me with longing for Thee
Then I shall seek out the lost
When I live only for Thee.

Let me not wallow in mire
Or get in a long tenured rut
But help me to look unto Thee Lord
Let it be “yea” not “but”.

No excurses to render me helpless
But yielding to the life of the cross
Enjoying my fellowship with Thee Lord
To do other, is too great a loss.

When “I Surrender All” has been sung
Let it be said Lord of me
Here is a heart that is fixed
To give Thee all praise and glory.

Rejoicing, my badge of compliance
Praising the Savior I love
Temporary disruptions are granted
But never, in Thy courts above.

There the Gift Giver shall gather
All the host of the redeemed
We will see how little we’ve given
In the light of eternal things.
