+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Lord of all good, our gifts we bring to thee,

use them thy holy purpose to fulfil,

tokens of love and pledges they shall be

that our whole life is offered to thy will.

+++++

We give our mind to understand thy ways,

hands, eyes, and voice to serve thy great design;

heart with the flame of thine own love ablaze,

till for thy glory all our powers combine.

+++++

Father, whose bounty all creation shows,

Christ, by whose willing sacrifice we live,

Spirit, from whom all life in fullness flows,

to thee with grateful hearts ourselves we give.
