1. Because I have been given much, I too must give; Because of thy great bounty, Lord, each day I live; I shall divide my gifts from thee With every brother that I see Who has the need of help from me.
2. Because I have been sheltered, fed by thy good care, I cannot see another’s lack and I not share My glowing fire, my loaf of bread, My roof’s safe shelter overhead, That he too may be comforted.
3. Because I have been blessed by thy great love, dear Lord, I’ll share thy love again, according to thy word. I shall give love to those in need; I’ll show that love by word and deed: Thus shall my thanks be thanks indeed.
