Thy life was given for me and thy blood o Lord was shed

1.THY life was given for me,
Thy blood, O Lord, was shed,
That I might ransomed be,
And quickened from the dead :
Thy life was given for me;
What have I GIven for Thee?

2.Thy Father's home of light,
Thy  rainbow-circled  throne,
Were left for earthly night,
For wanderings sad and lone:
Yea, all was left for me;
Have I left aught for Thee?

3.Thou, Lord, hast borne for me
More than my tongue can
tell Of bitterest agony,
To rescue me from hell :
Thou suffer'dst all for me;
What have I borne for Thee?

4. And Thou hast brought to me
Down from Thy home above
Salvation   full   and   free,
Thy pardon and Thy love :
Great  gifts  Thou  broughtest me;
What have I brought to Thee?

5. O let my life be given,
My years for Thee be spent,
World-fetters  all  be  riven,
And joy with suffering blent:
Thou gav'st Thyself for me;
I give myself to Thee.  
Amen.
