We give thee but thine own, whate'er the gift may be;
all that we have is thine alone, a trust, O Lord, from thee.
May we thy bounties thus as stewards true receive,
and gladly, as thou blessest us, to thee our first-fruits give.
And we believe thy Word, though dim our faith may be;
whate'er for thine we do, O Lord, we do it unto thee.
Please pray with us. Dear Lord, Our very small rural church ministers to well over 1500 individuals and families every week from all parts of your world. Our own personal needs are few and we thank you for what we have received. We ask, Oh Lord, that you guide those souls who participate with us in our sermons and Bible studies, to guide a portion of their fruits to support our ministry in the proclamation that Christ is King. We give thee but thine own, whate'er the gift may be; all that we have is thine alone, a trust, O Lord, from thee. AMEN
