1 O Lord of heav'n 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 flow'rs and fruits 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 Holy Spirit's dow'r,
Spirit of life and love and pow'r,
and dost His sev'nfold graces show'r
upon us all.

6 For souls redeemed, for sins forgiv'n,
for means of grace and hopes of heav'n,
Father, what can to Thee be giv'n,
who givest all?
